In this uncharted time of social distancing and self quarantines, we have decided to make our historic preservation coloring books available for anyone, and everyone, to download and print from home! We typically offer our coloring book for free to any visitor who comes into the Interurban Railway Museum, but the museum is now closed for the next few weeks (see updates on their closure here). These books include 14 historic locations around the City of Plano, including the Heritage Farmstead, the Texas Pool, and Old City Cemetery. The hand-drawn pictures are from one of our prior board members, Sid Wall, and one of our volunteers, Abagael Heimann. The first version is an English-only book compiled and written by prior intern Swaneet Mand, and the second is a bilingual English/Spanish version put together by prior intern Sydney Landers.
We hope everyone is safe and healthy at home!
