Sallie Andrews and Pam Price of the Grapevine Historical Society will present a program this month entitled “170 years of Grapevine history: 1844-2014.”

The presentation will be made at 7 p.m. Monday, which will chronicle the community development decade by decade to the present.

The program will focus on a pictorial and factual history of people and significant events from 1844 to 2014 that have brought Grapevine from a little farming settlement on the Grape Vine Prairie to an international city of today, located in theheart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

“This will be a fascinating trip through the years of peace and war, good times and tough times — giving insight into the vision, courage and fortitude reflected in the community spirit of the people and leadership for nearly two centuries on the old Grape Vine Prairie,” promoters said. “Everyone will enjoy this trip down memory lane.”

Andrews and Price participate in the Heritage Education Program, presenting tours of Grapevine’s Main Street, Heritage Center and Nash Farm as they share the history of the community of Grapevine and Grape Vine Prairie with students and adults.

The free event will be held in the program room of the Grapevine Public Library.
