Our Texas Mountain Trail regional non-profit organization is grateful for the participation and support of individuals and organizations across Far West Texas.  We could not do the work we do without the dedicated support of organizations like the El Paso County Historical Commission. 

Year after year, the dedicated folks volunteering their time to serve the Commission are recognized for their vibrant, creative and non-stop advocacy for the preservation and appreciation of El Paso County's history by the Texas Historical Commission and their Distinguished Service Awards.

From the EPCHC's website, "The El Paso County Historical Commission (EPCHC) is a vital link in Texas' preservation network. Few other states have a built-in mechanism that makes possible a preservation organization in every county. CHCs have statutory responsibility to initiate and conduct programs suggested by the county commissioners court and the Texas Historical Commission (THC). Over the years, CHCs have worked in a dynamic and positive partnership with the THC to preserve Texas' heritage for the use, education, enjoyment and economic benefit of present and future generations. They have been responsible for the preservation of countless historic buildings, artifacts, documents and other pieces of Texas history.

We work closely with the folks at the El Paso County Historical Commission on projects that illuminate the vibrant history and bring travelers to the county.  THANKS SO MUCH for your partnership and friendship!
