"Working to Preserve and Promote the Historic and
Cultural Resources of McCulloch County, Texas"
Donations and Memorials
A volunteer organization, MCHC operates under the supervision of the McCulloch County Commissioners Court and is prohibited from engaging in active fundraising. Receiving a small annual county appropriation, it must rely on grant awards, cash and in-kind donations, and memorials to fund its operating costs and many projects.
These projects include monitoring county cemeteries and state historical markers, archiving county history, preserving and protecting endangered properties and sites, and sponsoring projects that promote awareness of McCulloch County's historic significance. Other projects include the Swedish History Project, a digitized project in partnership with the University of North Texas' "Portal to Texas History," and McCulloch County Early Days, frontier-themed living history event currently being redesigned.
Other 2017 projects were the Texas Treasure Business Award ceremony in May during which ten local businesses will receive state-level recognition for more than fifty years of continuous operation, Hispanic History Month in September, participation in the high school's Veterans' Day program, and Swedish Christmas in December.
MCHC is currently working with the County Commissioners in the installation of a memorial tablet commemorating the contributions of Peter R. Brady, Henry and Nancy Fulcher, and Thomas E. Smith to early Brady and McCulloch County. In addition MCHC is working to have the West Sweden Cemetery designated as historic.
Each project has been selected not only for its local significance, but for its broader impact as well. None of the projects is inexpensive!
You may join our efforts to preserve and promote McCulloch County's historic and cultural resources by working with us to protect the county's unique places and stories! Tax-free contributions and memorials can be mailed to MCHC, P.O. Box 493, Brady, TX 76825.
All contributions will be appropriately acknowledged as requested.
