Holocaust Museum Houston will reopen this June following a multimillion-dollar expansion that more than doubled its size. At 57,000 square feet, the new three-story structure will be the fourth-largest Holocaust museum in the country and the first to be bilingual in English and Spanish. In addition, the museum will include the nation’s largest gallery of artwork by artist Samuel Bak, a Holocaust survivor.

The building will be renamed the Holocaust Museum Houston, Lester and Sue Smith Campus, in gratitude for the Smiths’ $15 million gift, the largest in the museum’s history.

Born and raised in Bryan, about 90 miles east of Village of Salado, Chadley Hollas, Village of Salado’s director of tourism, says he came to the town with one goal: to help Salado become Texas’ best small destination. His favorite thing about his adopted hometown is the people. “They are quirky, creative and hospitable—a neat combination that makes for many good conversations,” says Hollas.
