Lecture – “Rio Rico: Its History and Legacy” by Joseph Vidales @ Mary Yturria Education Center (Historic Brownsville Museum) | Oak Park | Illinois | United States

Before there were Progreso and Nuevo Progreso, there were Thayer, Texas and Rio Rico, Mexico. The story of Rio Rico is one of poverty, prosperity and the return to poverty.

Joe Vidales will present this history at the Mary Yturria Education Center at the Historic Brownsville on January 28, 2017.
