About Us

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 the  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.
