Castroville’s 170th anniversary to be recognized

The quarterly meeting of the Castro Colonies Heritage Association (CCHA) originally scheduled for September 21 has been moved up a week to Sunday, Sept. 14 so that the meeting would not conflict with the Medina County Fair. The meeting will be held in the auditorium of the Moye Retreat Center located at 600 London Street in Castroville, Texas at 2 p.m.

The year 2014 marks the 170th anniversary of the founding of Castroville by Henri Castro, and the program will recognize this pivotal event in the history of Medina County. Dr. Amy Jo Baker will give a talk entitled “The Founding of Castroville by Henri Castro.” The content of her presentation is based on her research as a graduate student at Trinity University in San Antonio.

Refreshments will be served after the meeting is adjourned.

The CCHA will commemorate the 170th anniversary of the founding of the other three Castro Colonies in the coming years: Quihi in 2015, Vandenburg in 2016 and D’Hanis in 2017.
