The Center serves as the official regional historical resource depository for the ten counties of Chambers, Hardin, Jasper, Jefferson, Liberty, Newton, Orange, Polk, San Jacinto, and Tyler. The Center's primary mission is to collect, preserve, and provide access to historically significant state and local government records and publications of the designated region, and to secondarily to serve as a library of Texana and genealogical resources for the region.

The Center’s holdings include over 12,000 cubic feet of historical materials related to Southeast Texas, comprised of local government records, manuscripts, fine art prints and photographs, blueprints and maps, newspapers, books and journals, three-dimensional artifacts, and audio-visual materials and microfilm. The Center is also responsible for five historic buildings, ranging in date from 1848 to circa 1930, and the Jean and Price Daniel Home and Archives, constructed in 1983.
