Immigrants to Texas from central-Europe in the 19th  century built simple wooden churches in their new communities, then decorated them with painted flowers, angels, vines, and clever trompe l’oeil effects. These beautiful Painted Churches are an important part of the artistic and ethnographic history of Texas. Travel with us and a guide during bluebonnet time!

Who were the women who once ruled the richest and most successful state of the ancient Mediterranean and African Bronze Age? Ancient Egypt's female kings ruled, despite the patriarchy in which they lived, with real, unadulterated power. Yet many of these female leaders were judged harshly for taking power.  Some were erased from the historical record by the men who followed them, leaving them elusive historical figures surrounded by mystery and myth. Go beyond the myths to discover  these powerful female kings and their historical legacy.
