The most historically significant buildings in Texas are commemorated with a designation from the Texas Historical Commission as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark. This honor is awarded to historic structures deemed worthy of preservation, and is the highest honor the state bestows upon historic structures in Texas.

UNT Libraries recently received a $25,000 TexTreasures Grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission to partner with the Texas Historical Commission to digitize and provide broad public access to 1,775 files related to buildings designated as Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks from five heritage regions in the state. Each of these historic buildings has an application and research file that document the significance and history of these seminal structures along with photographs that illustrate architectural features of the property.
