Born of One Man’s Passion for History

Located on the campus of Texas A&M University-Kingsville, the John E. Conner Museum has a history as old as the university itself. The First Professor of History, John Edwin Conner (1883-1989), began his collection in 1925 and the John E. Conner Museum was organized four years later. Since 1976, the Museum has been located in Loftin Hall, the original student dining hall. With both permanent and temporary exhibits, the Conner Museum continues to stimulate visitors and provide a glimpse into the intriguing story of South Texas.
