The Daughters of the Republic of Texas, as an organization and individuals, is committed to the preservation of Texas heritage. It was that goal that brought the organization together in 1891. The efforts of our early Daughters preserved the Alamo, which has become the standard that the world uses to recognize “Texas.” That work did not stop there.
Listed below are the Texas State owned properties and other properties and museums that DRT continues to preserve for today and for the generations of the future.
