Below you’ll find links to a few of the more than 170 historical story videos we produced for The Old Red Museum of Dallas County History and Culture. I will be putting up working examples of some of the 41 touch screen kiosks we produced for the museum soon, but for now, these are just examples of the videos that run in those kiosks.
The first one is former slave Henry Miller’s recollections.
This is a story of Sarah Horton Cockrell, one of the first successful entrepreneurs in Dallas.
And here is a story of early aviation and the first Dallas International Aviation Meet in 1911.
This one is the story of Gottleib Schoellkopf and how he originally came to Dallas and started his saddle and leather goods business, as told by his descendant former Dallas City Council Member John Schoellkopf.
Finally, here’s a story from Tom Simmons about how he got his first by-line in the Dallas Morning News, covering the demise of the infamous Bonnie and Clyde.
These are just a tiny fraction of the interesting stories we helped bring to life for the Old Red Museum. If you’re ever in downtown Dallas, you should treat yourself to a visit to this beautiful jewel of a museum.
