Holiday map orders help preserve Texas history

By Katherine Garcia | 27 de noviembre de 2012

Austin.- Whether it’s for the historian, collector, or simply map enthusiast in your family, historic maps from the Texas General Land office are the perfect Christmas gift.

Customers will receive a tube with replica of a historic map of Texas.

Maps available for purchase include a 41-inch by 46-inch map of Bexar county’s original subdivisions and their owners.  

Other great picks include an 1837 map of the Republic of Texas and an 1847 DeCordova map of the Republic of Texas when the state’s territory included parts of modern day Wyoming. Birds-eye view maps of San Antonio from 1873 to 1886 are also available.

Buying a map not only helps narrow down your Christmas list, but also benefits the Save Texas History Program.  

 “Online sales in December earn more for Save Texas History than any other time of the year,” Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson said. “Historic Texas maps make a great gift and buying them from the General Land Office helps preserve our state’s legacy.”

The program works to preserve over 35 million documents and maps at the General Land Office. These documents are then digitally preserved by the programs Digital Preservation Project.

The reproduced maps can be written off as tax-deductible charitable donations.

Maps can be purchased online at www.savetexashistory.org, some for as low as $20. Order by December 18 to ensure your gift gets delivered by Christmas or call the Archives and Records Division at the Land Office at 1-800-998-4GLO (4456).
