Michael Barnes, Austin Statesman columnist is our presenter and will discuss the background of the Casino Hall (located in Bastrop) and other places where early Texans enjoyed performances and social get-togethers. Mr. Barnes has written for the Statesman for three decades, and recently initiated a newsletter/column series called "Think Texas," a weekly digital newsletter that he describes as "about Texas history: from the arrival of indigenous people to the rise of the republic and the never-ending evolution of a state like no other."
