HENDERSON, Texas (KETK) – KETK News paid a visit to Henderson on Wednesday for our Small Town Live series.

Henderson became a Texas Main Street Project City in 1988, and Neal Barton visited their downtown which is full of shops.

“You’ve got to go to Donovan’s, which is right behind me. It’s a very fine shop (a) gift shop type of thing (with) Christmas decorations this time of year,” said Henderson Mayor, Buzz Fullen.

The city will also have their Heritage Syrup Festival on Saturday at the Henderson Depot Museum. This will be the 33rd year of the event.

East Texans can take a tour of several buildings with historical markers and visit the Children’s Discovery Center. Vickie Armstrong, a leader at the museum, said people can also check out an log cabin made in 1841 as well as other structures.

Neal was also able to talk to Tyler Stern, who is on the board for the Henderson Civic Theatre.

They have been putting on performances for around 30 years, and the building where they perform has been around since 1885. Their musical, “Christmas in the Park” is also coming up on Dec. 2-4 and Dec. 9-11.

“It’s a great musical. Tickets are available online,” Stern said.
