Alpine Plaque Brewster County Plaque
      June 9, 2014 - The Board of Directors of Historic Alpine, Inc., a non-profit corporation, has approved and installed two 20” x 30” plaques on the Wall of Pioneers in Alpine. The first, a brief history of Alpine, was placed on the eastern-most pillar located on the corner of 5th Street and Holland Avenue. The second, a brief history of Brewster County, was attached to the western-most pillar at the corner of Holland and 6th Street. Both are cast aluminum with metal colored lettering on a dark background. The plaques were graciously affixed to the Wall by the City of Alpine.
     Historic Alpine President Kip Sullivan said recently, “The next step will be the placement of a number of plaques honoring the pioneer families of Alpine and Brewster County.”
     The data confirmation is currently being finalized through the efforts of Carol Lewis, a Historic Alpine Board member, with her compilations being deposited in the Archives of the Big Bend at Sul Ross State University once the plaques are installed. Hence, her documentation will become a valuable tool for those conducting research on early settlers of Alpine and Brewster County.
     The Wall of Pioneers project has been funded through local contributions and grants from the Union Pacific Railroad. The Wall borders the Union Pacific Depot parking lot and Holland Avenue between 5th and 6th street and has become a reality through a handful of dedicated Alpine residents.
