TEXAS HISTORICAL BOARD
TEXAS HISTORICAL BOARD. The Texas Historical Board was established by the state legislature in 1923 and was composed of five members appointed by the governor. Its chief function was to submit recommendations to the legislature in regard to preserving historic relics, marking historic spots, purchasing historic grounds, and placing commemorative monuments. The board was abolished in 1951. Two years later the legislature established the Texas State Historical Survey Committee (see TEXAS HISTORICAL COMMISSION).
