Autograph Books

Autograph books were a popular keepsake amongst young adults beginning in the 15th century and started a trend which would last over 500 years. A typical entry might be a sentimental poem, drawing, or personal message.

Pictured below is one example of what you could find so eloquently inscribed in the pages of an autograph book. We have several of these books, owned by early residents of Boerne, on display in the Graham building.

Come see these and other Boerne-related artifacts at the Kuhlman-King historical complex every second Saturday from 12-3 or message us to set up a private tour.
