Location: Gardens at Old Town, 15060 Antonio Drive, Helotes, TX
Speaker: Rudi R. Rodriguez, Polly Texas Pioneer Association
Presentation: "Polly, Texas, a Tejano Settlement"
In the Texas Hill Country, 3.5 miles southeast of Bandera,
is the small historic settlement of Polly, Texas. The famous army scout, surveyor, Texas Ranger, rancher, judge, and minister,
José Policarpio "Polly" Rodriguez, founded the settlement in 1858. It is one of a few historical Tejano towns
remaining in Texas and has gone unrecognized for its part in our state's early history. In 2013, the Polly Texas Pioneer Association
was founded as a non-profit organization to preserve and conserve the heritage of Polly, Texas and the pioneers of that era.
Rudi R. Rodriguez, businessman, community leader, and great-great
newpher of José Policarpio Rodriguez, is vice chairman of the Polly Texas Association, founder of TexasTejano.com,
and author of A Tejano Son of Texas, a series of books about Texas Tejano pioneers. He will give a presentation on
this historic town.
