On May 16 beginning at 7 p.m. in the Kennedale Community Center, the Society will present Jim Frisinger, who will be giving a talk on the history of Kennedale Mountain, followed by Carolyn Cullum, KHS Art teacher and her class presenting the Re-Photography Art Exhibit.
For old timers, Kennedale Mountain is well known. For most of the rest, it is best known now for the location of the Southwest Nature Preserve on Bowman Springs Road.

Well, maybe not a mountain, the way most people think, but if you go out to the preserve and turn back to look north you will get a nice view of downtown Fort Worth. Then, try to visualize the area without I-20, the apartments up the road and the various businesses in the area.

Frisinger’s talk will cover about ?10 centuries of change? to the area.
Also, on the same evening, the AP Art Class at Kennedale High School under Art teacher Carolyn McCollum will present a different perspective on old photos of places and people of Kennedale, called ?Re-Photography Art Exhibit?.
The High School Art class will provide a refreshment table.
The Kennedale Historical Society encourages you to join them for an interesting and diverse look back.
