Quinta Mazatlan


6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Did you know Quinta Mazatlan was built in 1935? Special guest, Victor De Leon, will be at Quinta Mazatlan to further educate us on the history of Quinta Mazatlan! Hear about the tales of the families that built and lived at Quinta Mazatlán for a total of 60 years before the City of McAllen purchased the estate and opened it in 2006 as a mansion with a mission. Discover how this massive structure was built from adobe and the secrets to its longevity. Join us on Thursday, April 19th at 6 p.m., for this remarkable talk with Victor De Leon!

Local resident Victor De Leon taught science for 28 years — three years with the Harlingen school district and 25 with La Joya Independent School District. After retiring from teaching, he began a new career as the historian for Quinta Mazatlán. While still in the teaching mode, he enjoys researching the robust history of the previous families that owned Quinta Mazatlán and sharing those stories with guests during guided history tours of the mansion.

The Nature Speaker Series takes place on Thursday evenings through April 2018 and is proudly sponsored by Thurmond Eye Associates. The program fee is $3 per person and no advance reservation is required. Quinta Mazatlan is located 600 Sunset in McAllen, one block south of La Plaza Mall on 10th Street.
