Waco architect B.J. Greaves tells us about legendary architect Milton Scott. Scott created many well-know buildings during his career including the Dr Pepper Museum, First Baptist Church, and the Cooper House. He started his career in 1906 and kept working right up until he died in 1933. Many of Scott’s structures are still standing today.
It’s light as air, stronger than whiskey, and cheap as dirt! Stephen finally gets to talk about his love of…barbed wire. That’s right! Learn about the technological innovation that changed the West and ended the Chisholm Trail.
About the Waco History Podcast
The Waco History Podcast was started by Randy Lane and Dr. Stephen Sloan. Randy’s great-grandfather was a Roy E. Lane, a celebrated Waco architect. He’s responsible for designing the ALICO Building, Hippodrome, and other Waco landmarks. While searching through his own family history, he looked for a podcast about Waco’s history. When one didn’t exist, he sought out the perfect co-host to help him start one. That’s where Stephen comes in.
Dr. Stephen Sloan is in charge of the Institute for Oral History at Baylor University. He’s also a professor of history there. Stephen helped start wacohistory.org, a website devoted to helping people find out more about the city’s past. Together, with a series of guests, they’re looking to tell Waco’s known and unknown stories.
