Sunday Speaker Series: Goodnight Loving Trail

February 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

“The Goodnight-Loving Trail ran from Young County, Texas, southwest to Horsehead Crossing on the Pecos River, up the Pecos to Fort Sumner, New Mexico, and on north to Colorado,” according to the Texas State Historical Association website. However, it could be speculated that some herders from the Chisholm Trail took a turn and joined the Goodnight-Loving Trail to travel northeast into Colorado or Wyoming.

Joseph E. Chance, Ph.D., is an author of several published books on history, newspaper columns and essays. A fifth generation Texan, Chance was raised in Austin before making the RGV his home. Now a resident of Edinburg, Chance is married with three daughters.

Sunday Speaker Series is included in the fee for regular museum admission. FRIENDS of the MOSTHistory are admitted free as a benefit of FRIENDship and must present their FRIENDship card at the Admissions Desk.

This program is made possible with generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was deeply committed to supporting educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley. This named endowment was created at the museum by her family to honor her memory and to continue her commitment to providing opportunities for education to the community.
