A Birds Eye View of League City
Caroline Atkinson d'Etchegoyen, a former resident of League City donated "A Bird's Eye View of League City" to the Helen Hall Library. The artist, J.M. Mahaffey, painted the picture around 1898 on a 6-by-4-foot rectangle of handkerchief linen. This painting is an extraordinary representation of League City at the turn of the century. "A Bird's Eye View of League City" now hangs in the Local History Room on the second floor of the library.
