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 school’s first History professor, John Edwin Conner (1883-1989), began his collection in 1925 when the university was founded; the John E. Conner Museum was organized four years later in 1929. Since 1976, the Museum has been located in Loftin Hall on the Texas A&M-Kingsville campus, the original student dining hall; evocative of the Spanish missions of the region, it provides a beautiful setting for the museum’s diverse collections.
