This exhibit tells the extraordinary life story of William Marsh Rice - from his business relationships and the growth of his incredible fortune, to his vision for Rice Institute and ultimately his sensationalized murder. Inspired by the 100th anniversary of the opening of Rice Institute, his story is told through a collection of rare documents and photographs on loan from Rice University, and is made all the more personal by the proximity of his Greek Revival home maintained as a historic house museum at The Heritage Society. The William Marsh Rice exhibit is guest curated by Mr. Lee Pecht, Head of Special Collections at the Woodson Research Center, Rice University.
Admission to the Museum Gallery is free. The Museum Gallery is closed on Mondays.
