Texas Heritage Museum

Texas Heritage Museum began with the personal collection of Hill College history professor Harold B. Simpson in 1963, and has continued to expand over the years. In 1997, state funding was secured to renovate the old library building and establish the Texas Heritage Museum as a state museum.

Today, Texas Heritage Museum is comprised of three divisions: Galleries and Collection, Historical Research Center and the Hill College Press. Together the three provide a learning environment that has helped Hill College establish itself as “The College for the Study of History” for students, as well as community members and the general public from all over the world.
