    Mirador Hosts “From the First Settlers to Today” with Jim Moloney

    Mirador senior living community was proud to welcome Jim Moloney, who shared the incredible stories of how Corpus Christi became the city it is today. Residents and guests were able to hear the history of Corpus Christi from a man who’s been narrating its story for years. Jim Moloney knows South Texas. More specifically, he knows Corpus Christi. Over the years, Jim has written about the best and worst of its history through his five books. From 1919 – The Storm to Recollections of Other Days, his stories capture everything from Henry Kinney to the Civil War to the Cattle Barons to the incredible growth in the 20th century.

    “Corpus Christi is a wonderful city, but I had no idea it had such a rich history before hearing Moloney speak,” said Aaron DeNovellis, executive director at Mirador. “His stories were fascinating, and it was really great to learn more about our city from such an expert. Moloney really knows his stuff and has spent a great deal of time becoming an expert about the city of Corpus. I know we all really enjoyed hearing his stories while learning more about our hometown.”
