About the Museum

The Heritage Museum of the Texas HIll Country was organized, incorporated and chartered under the laws of Texas as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 1994 by a group of Comal County residents interested in the preservation of the rich heritage of the area. The Museum opened to the public on Texas Independence Day, March 2, 2000, boasting a site of over 350 dinosaur tracks and displays of farm equipment, pioneer and Native American history and the construction of Canyon Dam.

The operating budget of the museum is funded by membership dues, entrance fees, fundraisers and donations of money, supplies and labor. The community has been very supportive. A unique relationship has developed between the museum and Dr. Wann Langston, Jr. of the University of Texas at Austin, who first analyzed the site, and Dr. James Farlow of Purdue University, who has studied this track site since 1982. Their book, Texas Giants — Dinosaurs of the Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country was published in 2006.
