What is HHH?
Fundraising efforts to provide permanent home for Heritage Hall of Honor.
The fabric of Texas history contains many threads – political, social, military and economic – but none so basic, none so enduring as the story of the land itself. Volumes have been written about pioneers who pushed beyond the existing frontier to lay claim to the vast wilderness that was Texas. Legends surround these lone adventurers. The Texas Heritage Hall of Honor recognizes men and women who have made significant contributions to the agricultural heritage of Texas. They have made their marks as farmers, ranchers, drovers, inventors, innovators, educators, authors, legislators and preservationists. Their achievements span 170 years – reaching back to the birth of the Texas Republic and extending out into a limitless future.
The program was established in 1992 as a biennial program. Every two years, nominees – living and deceased – are considered for induction.
Six prominent Texans were inducted into the Texas Heritage Hall of Honor on September 24, opening day of the 2010 State Fair of Texas. The new inductees joined 54 previously enshrined members.
The most recent inductees are Tobin and Anne Armstrong, Susan Combs, Morgan Jones, Wade Lewis Pennington, and John Slaughter.
