    Corpus Christi Ė Corpus Christi Centennial Museum

    This little jewel of a building hasnít been used as a museum since the 1970s, when its art collection outgrew the space and it was replaced with the Art Museum of South Texas on the bay. Located in South Bluff Park, it consists of one room sixty feet long and forty feet wide with stucco exterior walls and plaster interior walls on a concrete foundation. Funds for its construction were provided by the Centennial Commission and Nueces County, and the land was donated by the City of Corpus Christi. There is no website.

    Rick Stryker, Director of the Museum of Science and History for the City of Corpus Christi said that it is presently leased out to the Police Athletic League which is using it for a youth boxing program. The Daughters of the Republic of Texas are now on the scene to save the building. The museum is on the Park Avenue side of South Bluff Park, which is on Park Avenue and South Tancahua.

    Author's Note:
    As you continue along the Centennial trail, it is pretty obvious that my best descriptions are the ones of the museums I have seen myself. So, if you have been to any of these, please tell us about it! Please email Sarah Reveley. - Sarah Reveley
