Kennedale Public Library
316 W. Third St.

The Kennedale Historical Society is hosting a program on Kennedale-Arlington Yesterday and Today: A look at who lived here from the Battle of Village Creek to the creation of the Southwest Nature Preserve.

This is a tale of original Native American inhabitants and the upheaval caused when the European conquest of Texas reached here in the 1830s. The modern focus will be on the 58 acres of the Southwest Nature Preserve, which is freezing in time the land — and the plants and creatures that continue to live here – for future generations to enjoy.

Presenting on the Battle of Village Creek will be John R. Lundberg, Ph.D., professor of history at Tarrant County College South Campus. Jim Frisinger, a volunteer with the Friends of Southwest Nature Preserve, will speak about the history of the preserve property.

The event is free and open to the public.
