The His­to­ry Cen­ter col­lects, pre­serves, and makes avail­able the his­to­ry of our region and its peo­ple for the edu­ca­tion­al use and ben­e­fit of present and future gen­er­a­tions. Geo­graph­i­cal­ly, this area includes but is not lim­it­ed to Angeli­na and the imme­di­ate sur­round­ing East Texas coun­ties. This region­al des­ig­na­tion includes an inter­est in the nat­ur­al and social his­to­ry of the area, the East Texas lum­ber indus­try, and the records of region­al fam­i­lies, orga­ni­za­tions, busi­ness­es, and governments.

The His­to­ry Cen­ter is free to the pub­lic and invites researchers and as well as the gen­er­al­ly curi­ous to enjoy our edu­ca­tion­al offer­ings both onsite and online. In con­nec­tion with our research col­lec­tions, we offer indoor and out­door inter­pre­tive exhibits and we invite school and oth­er groups to con­tact us for guid­ed tour information.
