Let Us Introduce Ourselves
Texana Living History Association, a non-profit
organization, provides a unique blend of entertainment,
education, history and performing arts by portraying
legendary Texans. Some of these are well known Texas heroes
and some are lesser known, but heroes just the same. In
addition to specific Historic
Characters, many of our volunteers have also
developed fictional Composite Characters who can
relay history as it was experienced by numerous Texas
After in-depth research of the character, surrounding
events, and clothing of that time period, the volunteer
tells their character's story in the first person. As they
unveil the hidden truths about Texas history and the
personalities, who shaped it, you will laugh, cry, ponder,
even clear up a fact or two.
The performance format can vary from casual "meet and
greets" and individual monologues, to formal staged
productions. We also offer customized
and/or chuckwagon Campsites
as well as numerous Pioneer
Life Skills and Crafts Demonstrations and Workshops.
Programs may be tailored to accommodate audiences from
children to seniors. We have programs designed just for
schools which meet many of the TEKS curriculum objectives.
Fourth grade and seventh grade gain special benefits as
related to Texas History. We also have programs designed
specifically for Girl Scouts of all program age levels.
Texana's credits include public and private schools, Scouts,
numerous historical organizations, cultural festivals,
corporate dinners, debutante receptions, fund raisers,
parties, teacher workshops, etc.

TEXAS HISTORY ALIVE!
Each year Texana presents
our annual premiere event called TEXAS HISTORY ALIVE! We
feature many of our Characters and provide a wide array of
Pioneer Life-Skills and Craft Demonstrations at our largest
Event Campsite of the year. The 2013 TEXAS HISTORY ALIVE! is
presented by Texana Living History Association and the A. W.
Perry Homestead Museum and will be open to the general
public. However, Girl Scouts may earn credit toward badge
work. This is a great opportunity for learning about Texas
history in a fun environment with lots of hands-on
experiences and make-and-take crafts. Event patch and GS
badge activities will be available.
