We will be holding events throughout the year to celebrate--both virtual, and in-person later in the year at the Texas Historical Commission's state historic sites. We hope you are able to join in helping us celebrate 25 years of serving as a critical nonprofit partner to the Texas Historical Commission!

    Join us virtually at the Magoffin Home State Historic Site for an interactive food history discussion and cooking demonstration!
