Tarrant County Historical Commission

A people who take no pride in the noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendents.
-- Macaulay

The story of Tarrant County is the story of the taming of the west; of Indian battles and cattle drives, of gunfights and gushers, of plantations and packing plants. From the coming of the pioneer to the coming of the railroad to the coming of high-tech assembly lines, it all happened here. It is the mission of the Tarrant County Historical Commission to ensure that the story is saved and savored for generations to come.

County historical commissions are authorized by the Texas Legislature for the purpose of "initiating and conducting programs for the preservation of the historical heritage of the county." Appointed by Commissioners Court for 2-year terms, historical commissioners operate under their own by-laws but in close association with the Texas Historical Commission in Austin. The Tarrant County Historical Commission meets regularly six times a year, but the work of its members is continuous.
