Kohrville Fest to improve, promote community history

Chevall PryceMay 16, 2019

Kohrville Fest 2019 aims to not only show the surrounding northwest Houston area what the small community is about, but to showcase their history while improving upon one of its historical sites.

Hosted by the Kohrville Community Amos Cemetery Association since its establishment in 2007, this year’s Kohrville Fest will be held at Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church on May 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event serves as a fundraiser for youth education programs and beautification of the Amos Cemetery, an official Texas historical landmark and the oldest Black burial ground in the Kohrville area. The cemetery has gravesites of slaves and veterans.
