Texas Czech Pioneers
The Texas Czech Pioneers project was launched in 2013 and pictorially portrays Texas Czech immigrants and their families. Its beginnings started as “Early Texas Czech Settlers” as a portable display at TCGS events. Today the display has over 350 photos and is located in the Pioneer Room in Temple, Texas.
