The Gandy family started filming the Summer Series of "AUSTIN HISTORY, SHORTCUTS & REVIEWS" in 2012. We had an awesome season by filming a tour of the Austin History Center with director Michael Miller, interviewed Bernadette Phifer director of the George Washington Carver Museum, filmed the new Tejano monument at the Capitol with history, climbed Mount Bonnell to film an awesome Texas Sunset and shared the recorded legend of Antoinette. Filmed Gary Perez sharing Native American history on the four fountains of Texas during the "Save Our Springs" 20th Anniversary celebration. We shared history of battles fought in Austin, growth of several areas, and ended the season with a great tour of the historic Neill-Cochran home museum with Cecille Marcato and the current renovation project. We also reviewed 13 restaurants with some inspirational history of how they have reached out to our community. We continued the series during the Fall/Winter season.
