Independent Insurance believes in preserving the best our community has to offer! There are rich roots embedded in our shared history, and our agency hopes to encourage our clients and friends to take an active role in preserving the heritage for future generations. For that reason, we have decided to support The Alvin Museum Community for all that it has to offer with their magnificent historical knowledge and artifacts.
The Alvin Museum Society was established in 1978, creating the Alvin Historical Museum to collect and record the history of the Alvin community. It exhibits historical pieces that explore the development of Alvin from its beginnings as an 1879 Santa Fe railroad loading site through its growth into a diverse Gulf Coast community.
The mission of the Alvin Museum Society is to “preserve the history of Alvin and its immediate area by heightening resident awareness of the value of saving the past for the benefit of the future.” Museum volunteers are available to give presentations based on research done throughout the collection on places, people, and events connected to Alvin’s history.
You can also help preserve our heritage. Simply recommend your friends, family, and co-workers to us for a non-obligation quote, and we’ll donate $10 for each person! All funds raised will go to the Museum. Let’s go!
