Texas Enthusiast

The unique history of Texas includes the stories of hundreds of noteworthy individuals whose contributions have made our state great. Among these individuals are countless women who fought for gender equality and shattered glass ceilings, creating new opportunities for those who followed. With the launch of this website, TSHA hopes to preserve and tell these stories to all Texas history enthusiasts.

Enthusiasts like you are our organization’s most loyal constituency and are critical to helping us spread and build on this content. For the launch of this initiative, we have curated some of our best content available on Texas women’s history and assembled a bundle available for download below.
