WEST COLUMBIA — Behind every thriving operation is that one special piece of the puzzle that holds it all together. At the Varner-Hogg estate, the key to its success is often attributed to Hal and Mary Fields. 

In an effort to honor the legacy of the Hal and Mary, the Varner-Hogg State Historical Site planned a day to celebrate their contributions and the contributions of Black cowboys, like Hal, who worked in Brazoria County.
