Neil McLennan: Patriarch of the Bosque

Neil McLennan: Patriarch of the Bosque In-Person

Waco pioneer Neil McLennan, as portrayed by William Covington of the Heart of Texas Storytelling Guild, will share with us his journey from Scotland to North Carolina in 1801 then to settle in Florida in 1820. In 1834 he set sail in a self-built, three-masted schooner to arrive at the mouth of Brazos finally settling in 1845 on the Brazos near Waco. Renowned as "the patriarch of the Bosque", Neil McLennan will share his life and times until his death in 1867.

Due to seating limitations, this will be a first-come, first-served ticketed event.

This program is part of a year-long series celebrating Waco's 175th Anniversary.
