Texas historical markers play an important role in preserving Texas’ epic history. Unfortunately, these important icons are vulnerable to graffiti, vandals, and theft. Recently a number of markers in the Texas Hill Country were defaced by vandals. Some centennial markers may be permanently damaged.
If you see that a marker has been vandalized or stolen, please report the incident to local law enforcement. You can also send information and photos to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THC staff can determine the best way to restore the damaged marker, but the restoration of centennial markers can be expensive and complex. The Friends of the Texas Historical Commission is raising money to fund the cost of these restorations.
