  1. Saturday at the Museum, "Train Crash at Crush"

    October 19, 2019, 9:30 AM @ Frisco Heritage Museum

    "Train Crash at Crush" lecture by author Mike Cox, presented by Heritage Association of Frisco, Inc. and Frisco Heritage Museum. Presentation: On September 15, 1896, Crush boasted the highest population in Texas. Built near Waco, the town provided the staging ground for a publicity stunt ramming two trains together at top speed. Showrunner and Katy Railroad official William Crush thought he had planned for every contingency. But when elephant-sized chunks of steam locomotive began raining down into the packed stands, the extravaganza quickly unraveled into one of the Lone Star State’s most confounding tragedies. Elected to membership in the Texas Institute of Letters in 1993, Mike Cox is the author of 30-plus non-fiction books. Since August 2015 he has been editor of the Wild West History Association Journal, which has a world-wide circulation. Two of his books — a work on Texas disasters and a two-volume history of the Texas Rangers — are included in 101 Essential Texas Book
