Steph Jarvis is celebrating her third year of being the director of the Texas Cotton Gin Museum.

Steph Jarvis pushes the barn doors of the oldest operating cotton gin open and the smell of oil rushes through the building as brisk January air fills the room. She points to conveyor belts and a large engine that used to bail cotton in Burton. “If these walls could talk,” she says, “And they do.”

Jarvis is celebrating her third year of being the director of the Texas Cotton Gin Museum and has enjoyed moving back home after living in Austin for 22 years. She now resides in Burton with her husband, Steven and son, James and frequently gets to see her twin sister, Susan Kiel and parents James and Ruth Schulenberg.
