Brownsville Heritage Complex Get Directions

The Brownsville Historical Association invites the children to discover the past with Playthings From the Past. This hour long program, occuring every Wednesday at 11:00am in August, uses paper dolls to teach participants about history and each week a new set of dolls and a new era of history will be featured.

Modern paper dolls are over 200 years old and were very popular in Victorian times. Using paper dolls as a teaching aide allows children to connect to the past in new ways. After the program, participants will be able to take their dolls home and create new adventures for them! The August schedule is as follows:

August 4: The 1940s
August 18: Little Hispanic-American Girl

Each class is $10.00 for non-members and $5.00 for members. This program has limited seating size, so pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Rhiannon Cizon at 956-541-5560 or email her at
