Join us as we take a look at how our forefathers kept warm during the bone chilling Blue Northers that blew through, and still blow through the Texas landscape. Through contemporary accounts and artifacts we’ll explore the different methods and articles of clothing that the Old Time Texians chose from when the mercury dropped.
