Celebrate Preservation Month and See the Sites for Free!

Did you know May is Preservation Month? Sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the endeavor encourages community members to celebrate and become involved in local preservation projects and historic sites. This year's theme is This Place Matters. The Texas Historical Commission and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department think our state historic sites matter so much we're offering free admission to more than 30 of them on Sunday, May 17. From military strongholds to house museums, plantations and Native American settlements, these historic sites offer the opportunity to truly experience the real places of Texas and the stories they preserve. So get involved in your local history and visit a historic site!
