Port Neches Oral History
Item request has been placed! ×
Item request cannot be made. ×
In 2013, Nola Martin and Beverly Evans conducted 42 interviews of 75 Port Neches residents who shared 17 hours of their memories of town, school, business, and their lives with us. Most interviews centered around individuals and their families, but some were conducted with multiple people and/or revolve around selected topics. We appreciate their efforts and the contributions of all who were involved in this project to help preserve the history and spirit of Port Neches' citizens.
