Agency History

The Texas State Historical Survey Committee was created on a temporary basis in 1953 (Senate Concurrent Resolution 44, 53rd Legislature, Regular Session) to administer a comprehensive state program for historical preservation; it was given more permanent status in 1957 (Senate Bill 426, 55th Legislature, Regular Session). The Committee became the Texas Historical Commission in 1973 (House Bill 1512, 63rd Legislature, Regular Session).

The Texas Historical Commission is composed of eighteen members appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate, serving overlapping six-year terms. Members must be citizens of Texas who have demonstrated an interest in the preservation of the state's historical heritage, and represent all geographical areas of Texas. Beginning in 1995, the membership must include a professional archeologist, a professional historian, and a licensed architect; and two of the members must be from counties with populations of less than 50,000. The governor names the chairperson. The members appoint an executive director to administer the agency. In 1998 the commission had a staff of about 100 employees.

The mission of the commission is to protect and preserve the state's historic and prehistoric resources for the use, education, economic benefit, and enjoyment of present and future generations. The main functions of the agency are to identify, preserve, interpret, and maintain historic and archeological sites. Duties of the agency include preservation consultation with the public; providing leadership to heritage organizations and county historical commissions; working with communities to protect Texas' architectural heritage, including operation of the Texas Main Street Program; administering the state's historical marker program; working with property owners to save archeological sites on private land; ensuring archeological sites are protected as land is developed for public construction projects; consulting with citizens and groups to nominate properties for historical and archeological landmark status and for the National Register of Historic Places; and making historical attractions a cornerstone of the Texas travel industry. The Commission also maintains the Historic Sites Atlas (a database of information on 200,000 historic sites in Texas); is involved with the LaSalle excavations; and was involved with the development of the Bob Bullock State History Museum that recently opened in Austin.

In the late 1990s, the Texas Historical Commission went through an agency restructuring in which several divisions were combined. The agency now contains seven divisions that carry out the responsibilities of the agency. The Administration Division oversees budgetary, planning, and other executive functions. The Community Heritage Division operates the Main Street Program, the Heritage Tourism Program, and the Certified Local Government Program. The Archeology Division administers the archeological programs of the agency in accordance with the National Historic Preservation Act and the Antiquities Code of Texas. The Architecture Division administers architectural grants, monitors the state's National Historical Landmarks and reviews proposed changes to Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks. The History Programs Division operates the National Register Program and the Local History Program. The Marketing Communications Division issues a monthly newsletter, The Medallion, provides production services for other departments, assists with public outreach, and helps coordinate the agency's annual museum conference. Staff Services handles personnel, accounting, and other staff functions.

The History Programs Division operates the National Register Program and the Local History Program. This division is compiling a statewide inventory of Texas properties significant in American history, architecture, or culture. It nominates the most significant properties to the National Register of Historic Places. It assists designated cities with developing ordinances and programs to preserve local landmarks and also provides other assistance to county officials, nonprofit heritage organizations, and individuals in preserving cultural and historic resources of the state. It operates the Texas Historical Marker program and administers the Sam Rayburn House Museum in Bonham, Texas.

There are several boards associated with the Texas Historical Commission. The State Board of Review evaluates nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. The Antiquities Advisory Board evaluates nominations for State Archeological Landmark status and considers issues associated with the Antiquities Code of Texas. The Guardians of Texas Preservation Trust Fund cultivates and develops sources of support for the trust fund and advises the commission of potential donors of property or other assets. The Advisory Board of the Texas Preservation Trust Fund makes recommendations on Trust Fund grant allocations and advises on matters relating to more efficient utilization or enhancement of the fund. The Main Street Interagency Council evaluates applications for the Main Street programs.

Detailed Description of the Records

 

State Board of Review minutes and agenda, 1983-1995,
0.24 cubic ft.

This series contains minutes and agenda of the meetings of the State Board of Review, a board affiliated with the Texas Historical Commission. Dates covered are 1983-1995. The minutes report the decisions by the Board on nominations of sites to be added to the National Register of Historic Places. The later minutes, beginning about 1990, contain often lengthy summaries of the discussions by Board members regarding the status of the nominations. Other items discussed in the minutes include changes in bylaws, resolutions, guidelines for nominating sites, and election of officers. The State Archives is missing all minutes prior to October 1983, minutes from 1984, January 1985, 1987, October 1988, February 1990, March 1991, July 1992, February 1993, September 1994, and any after February 1995. Agenda and supporting documentation are not present.
Information from the entries listed on the National Register can be found in an online database maintained by the Historical Commission, known as The Texas Historic Sites Atlas. As of March 2004 the Atlas was available on the web site of the Texas Historical Commission and can be searched by county, site name, or address, see http://atlas.thc.state.tx.us/.
Historical sketch
The National Register of Historic Places was established in 1966 through passage of the National Historic Preservation Act. The register serves as a federal listing of buildings, sites, structures, districts, and objects that meet one or more of the criteria defined in 36 CFR Part 60.4. If a site is eligible, a form is completed and submitted for nomination. Once a site is nominated, the form is reviewed by the National Register Department, then by the State Board of Review for formal consideration. If passed, it is submitted to the Keeper of the National Register for final approval and listing. The first listing of Texas properties in the register was in October 1969.
Agency history
The State Board of Review, affiliated with the Texas Historical Commission, evaluates nominations of historic sites to the National Register of Historic Places. Members are professionals in the fields of architecture, history, archeology, and architectural history. Members are appointed to the Board by the Texas Historical Commission.

County historical files, 1953-1979,
21.16 cubic ft.

Records in these files include correspondence, surveys of historical markers in the counties, membership lists and activity reports of county historical commissions, clippings, county historical commission newsletters and other publications, programs of local events, photographs of historical markers or sites, maps, and lists of donors to the Texas Historical Foundation. Dates covered are 1953-1979. Many of the activities documented in this series, especially during the 1960s, were undertaken as part of the Texas Historical Survey, a survey conducted by the Texas State Historical Survey Committee to gather information about historical markers and other historical and cultural resources in Texas counties. Specific survey projects covered in these records included gathering data on the location and condition of historical markers and centennial celebration markers in the counties. Other topics found in this series include membership and activities of the county historical commissions, appointments to the county historical commissions, requests for historical markers and medallions, historical marker dedications, requests for information about historical figures and/or historic sites in the counties, operation of local historical museums or sites, and meetings of county historical commissions. Correspondents include members of the Texas State Historical Survey Committee or the Texas Historical Commission, members of county historical commissions, county officials, and the general public. Some of the clippings in the files, especially in the early years, detail historical events that took place in the county; some clippings tell the story of early families in the county.
The Historical Commission maintains three other series containing information about county historical resources. The series Survey and inventory (files of historic resources), housed in the History Programs Division (National Register Program section), contains records from early surveys of historical resources in the state. The History Programs Division (Local History Programs section) maintains the series Marker files, which contain records of approved historical markers, and the series Photo/slide collection, which includes photographs and slides of historic sites in counties.
To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
Arrangement
The county files were organized by date into nine groups, some of which overlap in date coverage. Not all counties are represented in each group as most groups have some gaps. The files are arranged alphabetically by county within each group. Arrangement within the folders varies by group. Many are roughly in reverse chronological order based on the date of outgoing letters. This order is not always present in the earlier files, especially those containing large numbers of clippings. Clippings were usually congregated in the middle of the file, and were not in any particular order. Groups of files are: County files, G-Z, 1954-1964; County files, A-Z, 1962-1964; County files, A-Z, 1953-1970, undated (bulk 1964-1969); County files, M-Z, 1966-1969 (bulk 1966-1967); County files, A-R, 1965-1972 (bulk 1969-1970); County files, K-Z, 1963-1971 (bulk 1969-1970); County files, A-Z, 1969-1973 (bulk 1971-1972); County files, D-Z, 1971-1976 (bulk 1973-1974); County files, A-V, 1971-1979 (bulk 1975-1978). The last group contains annual reports of counties for 1975-1977 following the county files.

County historical committee program files, 1965-1974,
0.47 cubic ft.

These files include correspondence, memos, questionnaires, meeting schedules, notes, and various checklists. Dates covered are 1965-1974. The files reflect various levels of interaction between the staff of the Texas State Historical Survey Committee (TSHSC) (later the Texas Historical Commission (THC)) and county historical committees. Correspondents include staff of TSHSC/THC, usually field operations staff or the executive director; members of county historical committees, often the county chairmen; and county judges. Topics include surveying inactive historical committees to encourage participation of the committee with the state, informal visits and regional meetings with county committees by TSHSC/THC staff, notifying county chairman of materials needed for county chairman's activity reports, county budgets, and distinguished service awards.
To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
Arrangement
Files are arranged by type of record.

Historical marker program administrative files, 1955-1984 (bulk 1961-1966),
3 cubic ft.

Records consist of correspondence, logs, maps, notes, drawings, photographs, purchase orders, contracts, and bids and specifications, dating 1955-1984, the bulk dating 1961-1966. These are administrative files of the historical marker program operated by the History Programs Division of the Texas Historical Commission (THC) and its predecessor, the Texas State Historical Survey Committee (TSHSC). Correspondents include TSHSC/THC staff, the State Building Commission, the State Board of Control, county historical societies, local officials, firms building or repairing historical markers or monuments, and the general public. Topics include the construction, erection and repair of historical markers; text of marker inscriptions; and administration of the historical marker program. There is a separate group of folders for Confederate and Texas War for Independence markers and monuments. In addition to state historical markers, files are also present concerning Confederate markers in other states that have a significance to Texas. Of special note is a log of memorial markers in Texas (mostly for Confederate sites), giving the name of the marker and the dates received, approved, and erected. Filed with the log are individual sheets on each marker (title, location, contact source, text of inscription on marker). Also worth noting are lists of historical markers in most Texas counties (giving the topic and description of marker) and a survey of grave locations for Texas War of Independence veterans. This survey contains the name, site of grave, source material, and notes. Some material on 1936 Centennial markers is also present. There is a small amount of correspondence that discusses other programs within the TSHSC, mostly correspondence with the State Building Commission about wages and other administrative costs.
To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
Arrangement
The files remain arranged as received from the agency. Within the files, the records are generally in reverse chronological order.

These are copy photographs, negatives and a few original photographs received from the Texas Historical Commission documenting county historic photograph projects. Dates of the images, based on the original photo date supplied, range from circa 1880 thru 1988, and undated, the bulk dating from circa 1900 thru circa 1930. Dates of documents submitted with the photographs are 1987-1989. According to documents found in the files these are photos sent to the Texas Historical Commission (THC) by county historical commissions as part of the qualifying process for the THC's Distinguished Service Award. This qualification process included visual documentation of local history by submitting several copies of historic photographs, such as from collections in a local museum or county archives. Items filed with the photographs include inventories of photographs in collections or in a museum and descriptions of the collections or of individual photographs. Inventories are not present for all counties submitting photographs. Files are present for only a few counties. Preceding the set of county files is a folder of photographs used by the THC in its publications. Specific publications are not noted.
The bulk of the photographs are black and white and range in size from 3 by 5 inch snapshots to 8 by 10 inch prints. A few color snapshots are present for one county.
Arrangement
These records are arranged alphabetically by county, following a folder of THC publication photographs.
