Local Civic Projects and Goals
James Blair Chapter members have long been involved with city and county efforts to make Corsicana and Navarro County a “go to” place. The oil industry west of the Mississippi got its start in Corsicana in 1894 and is featured in the promotion of our area. Our famous brick streets are being restored. First class entertainment and exhibits come to our restored vaudeville Palace Theater and the Warehouse of Living Arts Theater and Gallery. We have sanctioned rodeos on a regular basis, a pioneer village that showplaces historic buildings plus pictorial archives, and annual festivals that bring visitors from around the state. The Cook Education Center on the campus of Navarro College features a world class planetarium, the Pearce Museum (American Civil War and Western Art collections), and the Navarro College Archives.
