With the help of grants and individual donations the Fort Bend County Museum
Docents raised the money to build a new bathroom facility on the Moore Home
grounds. They are now taking donations for engraved bricks to be placed around
the walkway to complete the project. The donations will be used for other projects
that the docents are working on, such as remodeling the kitchen and storage
If you would like to purchase a brick to honor a family member, friend, or another docent, please click here for more information.
