A Brief History of the Republic of Texas Museum

The Republic of Texas Museum was created by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas shortly after the organization was founded in 1891. It was first located in the east wing of the State Capitol in 1903, and then the Old General Land Office on the Capitol grounds in 1917. The Daughters of the Republic of Texas purchased the current building in 1991, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the organization. The new Republic of Texas Museum opened its doors to the public one year later and continues to preserve and exhibit artifacts from the Republic of Texas era.
