Donation of Historical Artifacts and Photos

The process of collecting local history is similar to putting together a jigsaw puzzle – and there are always a few missing pieces to be found. The Historical Society welcomes contributions that have some connection or relevance to historical San Marcos-people, places, events, and/or culture. For more information on contributing an artifact or photo - contact us.

Welcome Center Donations

With the completion of the Welcome Center, the Historical Society has created a “Wish List” of items that will be needed to furnish the building. Items needed include conference room furniture, heavy duty storage shelving, audio visual equipment, a microwave oven, and much more. We gratefully accept in-kind donations or financial contributions to purchase these items. Email us to receive a copy of our complete Wish List. In-kind donations and contributions to the San Marcos Historical Society are tax deductible.

Community Service Projects

The San Marcos Historical Society welcome Scouts, youth groups, service organizations and faith centers to plan a community service project at Heritage Park. There are many ways to help our organization thrive. Examples might include a clean-up day, plant a garden, paint a fence, or help change a display case. Community service projects are customized to fit the age and size of the participating organization. When planning a service day, the Historical Society will be on hand to provide historical home tours and participants can enjoy a picnic lunch under a shade tree. Please contact the Historical Society at least 4 weeks in advance of scheduled service day.
