Old San Angelo
Local History & Genealogy for San Angelo & Tom Green County

This is my growing collection of old photos, postcards,  newspaper clippings, and other artifacts from San Angelo (Tom Green County), Texas.

My hope is that family historians & genealogists with links to this west Texas community will find a long-lost cousin, or finally see a picture of that neighbor that Grandma always talked about.
