Let Us Introduce Ourselves

Texana Living History Association, a non-profit organization, provides a unique blend of entertainment, education, history and performing arts by portraying legendary Texans. Some of these are well known Texas heroes and some are lesser known, but heroes just the same. In addition to specific Historic Characters, many of our volunteers have also developed fictional Composite Characters who can relay history as it was experienced by numerous Texas pioneers.

After in-depth research of the character, surrounding events, and clothing of that time period, the volunteer tells their character's story in the first person. As they unveil the hidden truths about Texas history and the personalities, who shaped it, you will laugh, cry, ponder, even clear up a fact or two.

The performance format can vary from casual "meet and greets" and individual monologues, to formal staged productions. We also offer customized Pioneer and/or chuckwagon Campsites as well as numerous Pioneer Life Skills and Crafts Demonstrations and Workshops. Programs may be tailored to accommodate audiences from children to seniors. We have programs designed just for schools which meet many of the TEKS curriculum objectives. Fourth grade and seventh grade gain special benefits as related to Texas History. We also have programs designed specifically for Girl Scouts of all program age levels.

Texana's credits include public and private schools, Scouts, numerous historical organizations, cultural festivals, corporate dinners, debutante receptions, fund raisers, parties, teacher workshops, etc.

All donations are deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

We would like to invite you to browse our website for more detailed information on the Programs and Volunteer Opportunities that are available.
 


TEXAS HISTORY ALIVE!


Each year Texana presents our annual premiere event called TEXAS HISTORY ALIVE! We feature many of our Characters and provide a wide array of Pioneer Life-Skills and Craft Demonstrations at our largest Event Campsite of the year. The 2013 TEXAS HISTORY ALIVE! is presented by Texana Living History Association and the A. W. Perry Homestead Museum and will be open to the general public. However, Girl Scouts may earn credit toward badge work. This is a great opportunity for learning about Texas history in a fun environment with lots of hands-on experiences and make-and-take crafts. Event patch and GS badge activities will be available.

TEXAS HISTORY ALIVE!
