History is one of our state’s greatest natural resources. Ours is a storied journey from a territory of foreign nations, to an independent republic, to becoming the 28th U.S. state in 1845. Today, Texas offers more than 13,000 State Historical Markers commemorating everything from the Alamo to grand old mansions, to sacred burial grounds, to landmarks of the Wild West and frontier forts. Explore virtually any part of Texas and you’ll be following in the footsteps of legends.
