TS­HA invites you to join our spirited community of Members dedicated to examining and preserving the fascinating history of Texas.

Founded as an independent nonprofit 125 years ago, TSHA marches on, offering nearly 3,000 Members exclusive access to digital and print publications, programs, and free and ticketed events that foster the appreciation, teaching, and understanding of Texas history.


All Members enjoy access to the MyTSHA dashboard’s ever-evolving resources which include:

  • digital copies of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly volumes from the present back to 2006;

  • an evolving roster of free downloadable eBooks on the Texas Revolution, Civil War, and more;

  • the ability to save your favorite Handbook entries directly to your dashboard; and,

  • access to archived Texas Talks and other events, such as the San Jacinto Symposium.

With the exception of the $35 Digital Membership, Members also receive print TSHA publications which include, depending on Membership level:

  • the Touchstone and Texas Historian journals, featuring research from young scholars;

  • four issues per year of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly;

  • and the most recent edition of the Texas Almanac.
