Project Pride

Project Pride is a community organization in Cross Plains, Texas, which bought and restored the Robert E. Howard home (with financial support from REH fans around the world, and from the late Alla Ray Morris, who had inherited the rights to REH's works). They now operate the Home as a museum in REH's memory, and they love to have an opportunity to show it off for visitors. Bob's room is particularly well done. It is not open on a regular basis, so it is best to make arrangements in advance, by writing Project Pride, P.O. Box 534, Cross Plains, TX 76443.

Each June, Project Pride and the City of Cross Plains sponsor Robert E. Howard Remembrance Day, during which special postal cancellations and commemorative t-shirts are offered, tours of the home are available, and the Cross Plains Library puts on display some of their holdings of REH original manuscripts. It's a great holiday for a Howard fan. While much has been done in the ten years since Project Pride first bought the house, a lot remains, and Cross Plains is not a wealthy community. Any support from REH fans -- either through joining Project Pride, or through donations earmarked for the Howard Home -- helps with the ongoing efforts to preserve Howard's memory in his hometown.
