Kendall County Historical Commission

 

The Kendall County Historic Commission (KCHC), originally organized in 1962 (as the Kendall County Historical Survey Committee), is charged with leading historic preservation and commemorating historic events and buildings with the Texas Historic Marker program.  Members of the Commission are adults, appointed by the Kendall County Commissioner’s Court for a two-year term.  There are currently 28 members, living throughout the county.  Its mission is to preserve, protect and promote history within the county and to that end shall:

·       Conduct continuing programs of historic marker recommendations and placements in accordance with the Texas State Historic Commission requirements;

·       Make recommendations to the County Commissioners Court for property acquisition, real or personal, which is of historic significance;

·       Accept, whenever feasible, artifacts and other items in the name of either the Kendall County Historical Commission or the County Commissioners;

·       Support the programs of the Texas State Historical Commission; and

·       Encourage the preservation of historical documents and family histories.

In addition, the KCHC leads and directs the activities involved with preserving and commemorating historic events in the county.
