Ebenezer Allen Living Historian at Allen Heritage Depot

On March 25, 2023, I had the pleasure of appearing as Ebenezer Allen at the Allen Heritage Depot. I told the visitors about Allen’s life and his contributions as an entrepreneur and statesman.

Check out these pictures of me from November 2019 at the depot.

Other images of the depot and the Houston and Texas Central Railroad.

Here are a few pictures from the event.

Mr. Ed Byran of the Allen Historical Guild provided some additional photos.
