Dumped and Forgotten Below the Milam Street Bridge will be on display from May 16 – August 4, 2018 in the Museum Gallery.

One of the highlights of the exhibit is an amazing, never-before exhibited Civil War era archaeology collection that has received new life with modern conservation treatments and has been researched by experts in munitions.

The purpose of this exhibit is to educate visitors about Houston’s role as a port city in the Civil War and to discover what happened to these artifacts once abandoned in the bayou.

Other stories that will be addressed include urban slavery in Houston and Juneteenth, tales of a local Union prison camp and “Fort Humbug,” the Wharton/Baylor murder in downtown Houston, blockade running and more.
