The Hays County Historical Commission is a group of volunteers appointed by the Hays County Commissioner's Court for a two year term to preserve the history and cultural resources of Hays County. In addition to implementing the State Historical Marker program of the Texas Historical Commission on a local level, the Hays Historical Commission is active in the preservation of area cemeteries and historical sites. Our purpose is to provide information to the public and educational resources on the significance of our heritage in Hays County.

Since its establishment in 1953, the Hays County Historical Commission has erected markers at important sites across the county, inventoried every cemetery in the county, and conducted a survey of our historic locations. The Commission is active in nominating properties to the National Register of Historic Places, which is our nation's honor roll of significant places in our history. One of our current projects will be restoring the old jail in downtown San Marcos. The Historical Commission also publishes books and brochures pertaining to the history of the county, a list of which are available on this web site.
