Archives tell the Texas story. Our history is revealed through the records we produce. Manuscripts, photographs, maps, government documents, artifacts, and sound and moving images tell us about our past. They also help us understand who we are today.
So, we decided to let our staff take you on a tour of our stacks by spotlighting some of their favorite things. Archivists and librarians have selected items that offer a fascinating glimpse into our state’s past, and they share something about what makes those records unique and important.
Come see the Archives À la Carte Exhibit at the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building on display February 15, 2018, through August 31, 2018. Exhibit items can also be seen online at Archives À la Carte: Staff Picks Exhibit.
