Help All Texans Explore & Engage With History

Texans are blessed with a rich and complex history

In fact, the Lone Star State is home to thousands of historical, cultural, and natural treasures.

Sadly, the cost to preserve all these gems far exceeds the budget of the Texas Historical Commission. Will you help with a tax-deductible gift today?

Your generous gift will help:

  • Save places at risk, like local courthouses
  • Preserve and operate 34 historic sites statewide
  • Provide hands-on learning for students of all ages

In times like these, it’s vital that ALL Texans understand our past. That gives us a fuller picture of who we are today … and inspires us to create a bright future together.
