How You Can Help Preserve the Past

  • Children at state historic site archeological dig

    Opportunities abound to assist at one of the THC’s State Historic Sites throughout Texas. You can participate in a special event or service project as an individual or a group, or you can join a site's Friends group. Site host volunteer opportunities are available at some sites.

Leave a Legacy

The Texas Historical Commission (THC) offers several opportunities to assist Texans interested in leaving a legacy by donating property or easements. A donor’s generosity will help preserve and protect Texas’ significant resources for future generations and, in the process, provide potentially significant tax benefits. With the help of the THC, this can be accomplished in three ways: conservation easements, land banking and the Revolving Properties Fund.
