[ARCHIVED] Longview Celebrates 150 Years

Friends toast

Longview celebrates 150 years in 2020! Longview was formed in 1870 when O.H. Methvin deeded 100 acres of land for the creation of a town along soon-to-be-constructed railroad line. As the story goes, they stood from the top of "Rock Hill" in present-day Downtown Longview and said something along the lines of "Oh my, that’s a long view." The rest is 150 years of East Texas history. 

Celebrate with us with a series of exciting events that are planned all over town. The fun never stops.
