Texas Heritage Magazine

All archived copies of Texas HERITAGE magazine.

Texas HERITAGE magazine is one of the few publications in the state that focuses solely on the material culture and stories of our Texas past.

For the last 28 years, Texas HERITAGE magazine has done an award-winning job of telling the stories of the men and women who came before us—and of those working today to save our buildings, culture, and traditions.

Texas HERITAGE has received awards from business communications groups and historical organizations. It was the official commemorative publication for the opening of the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum; joint issues have been produced with the Texas Map Society, the Texas Archeological Society, and the General Land Office, among others; and several special issues—such as those on historic maps, Texas currency, and the state’s flags—included images that had never before been seen publicly.
