SAN ANGELO, Texas — Beginning Saturday, Jan. 29, Angelo State University will host an exhibit to highlight the developments in travel in Texas and the western United States. The exhibit will be held in the ASU Mayer Museum, 2501 W. Avenue N.

"Transportation in the West" will be open for free public viewing from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays through May 14.

The exhibit will feature a wide array of artifacts from Goodfellow Air Force Base, Fort Concho National Historic Landmark, Karl Books, the Railway Museum of San Angelo, ASU's West Texas Collection, the Texas Department of Transportation and Texas Tech University's Southwest Collection.

The exhibit will also illustrate the experience of travel in the West, with additional focus on the ways different modes of transportation helped shape the development of San Angelo. It will trace western travel from historic trade routes and the growth of the railroad through the adoption of the interstate highway system and the importance of our regional airport.
