As Texans, native or adopted, we share a common bond over our state’s complex and diverse history. By delving deeper into our past, we commemorate accomplishments, learn from failures, and receive inspiration to pursue greater achievements in the future.

At TSHA, our mission is to foster the appreciation, understanding, and teaching of the rich and unique history of Texas. Through our publications and education programs, we strive to ensure Texans of all ages discover their past to better inform their future. We want to help set students up for scholastic success, provide the means for scholars to conduct and publish new research into our state’s past, and allow all who share your passion for Texas history to freely access quality material on the Lone Star State’s past.

We need your help to accomplish these ambitious goals. You provide the means to complete new projects, publish historical materials, and improve Texas history education for the state’s youth. With your support, we will work together to ensure Texas history retains a prominent place in the hearts and minds of students and adults across the state and beyond.
