The Eanes History Group will learn the history (and other wild tales) of West Lake Hills at our monthly gathering NEXT MONDAY, November 11. Please join the group at Westbank Library from 11:30-1:00 to hear Jeffery Dochen, stepson of WLH founder, Emmett Shelton, Sr., as he shares entertaining and insightful stories from the beginning days of this unique village.

On the second Monday of each month, join fellow history buffs in learning about, sharing, and celebrating the heritage of the Eanes area!

Would you like to know how a Mexican faith healer changed the land use in these rugged hills? Can you name the act of outrageous generosity that created a permanent home for the Eanes School? Do you live in the Westbank neighborhood that has materials recycled from the Texas Capitol fire of 1881?
