Please join the Tomball Museum Center for our March Museum Talk with Greg Broussard on Thursday, March 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the Museum’s Fellowship Hall building.
Greg is a volunteer at the Tomball Museum Center, restoring antique woodworking hand tools and creating videos illustrating their use. Greg also operates the local business Handcrafted by GR Broussard, where he makes high quality furniture and custom wood projects for his customers. The woodworking techniques he uses are hundreds of years old. Using only traditional joinery, his products are meant to last for generations.
Greg will describe his recent woodworking activities and will show us how he uses some of these historic hand tools to create art, in the form of useful furnishings.
If you are not able to attend, this event will be videotaped as part of the Museum’s continuing Museum Talk video series.

Please join the Tomball Museum Center for our April Museum Talk with Gary L. Foreman on Thursday, April 27, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. at the Museum’s Fellowship Hall building.
Award winning producer/director Gary L. Foreman has worked in multiple aspects of the media and film production since 1972. His diverse talents also include professional photography, creative and technical writing, historical consultant, talent advisor, and set design. Foreman soon began focusing his talents and expertise towards the educational field, including historical documentaries, cultural programming, and historic preservation. His untiringly active preservation efforts for historical sites are well known and chronicled in several publications, including “Sacred Ground: Americans and their Battlefields” (1993 University of Illinois Press).
Combining a “cinematic presence” with superior historical recreations, Foreman has successfully pioneered a new vision of authentic programming for such networks as A&E, The History Channel, Discovery, and PBS.
Having performed on both sides of the camera, Foreman’s credits include the critically acclaimed First Invasion: The War of 1812 (2004 History Channel-creator/producer/director); Boone & Crockett: The Hunter Heroes (2003 History Channel – creator/producer/director) along with dozens of other highly rated programs.
