At the Historic Odessa Foundation, Members make it all happen! Your membership dues support programs and site enhancements-since the Historic Odessa Foundation reincorporated in 2004, we've been busy updating the Houses, creating brand new traditions, and working year-round to elevate the Historic Houses of Odessa into a regional destination immersed in history and fun for visitors.
Discover a wonderful private collection of turn of the century baby food pushers. Often presented to the proud parents to mark the occasion of a new born, and possibly engraved with the baby’s name or monogram, these utensils were used to maneuver the baby’s first solid foods on their plate. The lump of food would then be pushed onto the baby’s spoon for feeding.
"A Night at the Races" is this years theme for our Volunteer Apperication Party.
