In 1976, the Parker County Heritage Society was created by concerned citizens who witnessed the rapid demolition of homes and buildings in the early 1970s. The objectives of the Society, a 501 C3 organization, shall be to promote the preservation of buildings, homes and sites of historic or architectural significance within Parker County, Texas, to promote the maintenance of documents and records which describe the heritage of the County, its citizens and their ancestors, and to promote civic interest in historical projects, education and culture throughout Parker County.
Our membership is open to any individual who demonstrates an interest in the Society's objectives and maintains membership rights by paying our dues of $20 per family per year. Meetings are usually held the third Tuesday of each month in members' homes. Please check our event calendar for the next meeting and location.
Because we are a wholly volunteer organization, we do not house historical documents, deeds or land abstracts and cannot assist with personal geneaological or family research. We suggest calling the Parker County Courthouse annex for deed information and our Weatherford Public Library for family information. The phone number and operating hours of the library can be found on our historical links page.
Take a moment to visit all of the different areas on our website. It includes an interactive map with photos and histories of more than 50 homes and buildings, information on our annual events and our monthly meetings.
