Message from the President
The Laffite Society is one of the premier historical societies in the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast region. The society is a unique blend of scholarly history and social activities at a very affordable cost. We focus on Jean and Pierre Laffite and related topics of the region during the late 1700s and early 1800ís. A number of serious and respected scholars belong to the society and the presentations at our monthly meetings are top-notch. Programs may include the sailing ships, weapons, currency, Native American cultures, shipwrecks, and other topics of the period. Much of our research material is kept at Texas A&M-Galveston where it is available for study. Most of our members are simply interested in history and we are far from stuffy. Our monthly meetings include dinner, refreshments, and a presentation. They are never boring! We also do interesting field trips, social events, and community outreach projects. I hope you will accept my invitation to attend one of our meetings and consider joining the Laffite Society!
