Land Comm. Buckingham Announces "I Saved Texas History" 2024 Fundraising Campaign



"As a mother of two, I understand the importance of educating future generations and preserving our history,"
Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas Texas Land Commissioner Dawn Buckingham today announced the “I Saved Texas History” fundraising campaign conducted by the Save Texas History Program at the Texas General Land Office (GLO). Everyone who donates $30 or more will receive a limited edition T-shirt featuring custom Texas-themed artwork.

Created in 2004, the Save Texas History program is a statewide initiative to rally public support – and private funding – for preserving and promoting the historic maps and documents housed in the GLO Archives.

The effort has the twin goals of preservation and education, and seeks to conserve historical maps and other documents for future generations while educating Texans about the rich heritage found in these important records.

"As a mother of two, I understand the importance of educating future generations and preserving our history – and in my visits to the archives, I've uncovered family history dating back nine generations," said Commissioner Dawn Buckingham.

"Giving to the GLO’s Save Texas History Program will ensure our precious documents are preserved so that future generations of Texans get the opportunity to learn more about their own Texas story.”

 
One of the highlights of the Save Texas History program, is an invitation to step inside the GLO's map vault and witness one of the greatest cartographic collections in the country.

More than 45,000 maps help tell the story of Texas and all of North America.
