Opening Soon at the Fort Bend Museum
Discover Fort Bend County's Paper Landscape.
Since the beginning of human civilization, our society has documented itself. Whether in deeds, letters or other documents and whether typed or handwritten, people have an attachment to putting words to paper.
Major milestones from birth to death are memorialized on paper. Everyday events such as sales and celebrations are often also not complete without an appropriate form or certificate.
Today, we have entered a digital world where we write and send messages in seconds. The written word may be fading into the past. This exhibit invites you to take a look back when writing was important and printing was an art form.
