Exhibit Now Open!

Installation of PEC Sign Photos
You can see one important component of the exhibit as workers carefully delivered a Pedernales Electric pole sign that was in use at the Bertram service station in the 1950s and 1960s. The sign has been refurbished and is lit for visitors to enjoy. This is just one of the historical items loaned to the Library and Museum by Pedernales Electric.
