You Are Here: Maps of Texas


The Heritage Society Museum
Free admission

Maps tell us many interesting stories about the past. They depict locations, regions and human interactions. Tracing Texas’s history through an examination of its borders tells us as much about the diversity of people settling here as it does the geography. Historic maps often highlight subjects such as politics, land use, and patterns of settlement that change throughout the region’s history. THS will exhibit a selection of maps from our collection, such as the 1869 W. E. Wood Map of Houston, along with maps of Texas on loan from private collectors and institutions.
