At the Fort Bend History Association, we are that someone.
We are the preservers of places — such as the iconic 1883 Moore Home that is still standing, still inspiring and still a memorable site for tours, field trips and community gatherings.
We are the savers of items — our historical collection includes nearly 70,000 unique and varied artifacts reflective of our community’s past.
We are the storytellers — from costumed interpreters at the George Ranch Historical Park to tour guides at historic Dew House, the stories that we tell give insight into the past and provide a spark of inspiration for our future.
We’re proud of this role we play in the community fabric, but there’s another component that is indispensable in the mission to share and preserve Fort Bend County history: YOU.
You are also that someone. By supporting the Association, you are also a preserver, curator and storyteller. You help us take care of treasured historic buildings and help capture and re-tell stories of our state and county in memorable ways. When you support the mission to share and preserve Fort Bend County history, you become a historian in your own right — someone with the vision, heart and commitment to embrace the stories so worthy of being told and celebrated.

The work to keep up historic structures is never done. The 1883 John and Lottie Moore Home is one of our county’s architectural treasures, and requires year-round maintenance to preserve its integrity. Just as with any home, sometimes there are surprises, too — such as a massive honeybee colony that took up residence inside one of the home’s iconic columns last year!
The Association almost doubled its historic collections last year, adding nearly 30,000 items pertaining to Fort Bend County history. As these priceless items continue to be saved from obscurity, your gifts can help fund appropriate storage space and proper care and handling so that the items can be preserved for future generations to enjoy. Irreplaceable artifacts come in all shapes and sizes — from this dainty transferware plate of the 1830s to the turn-of-the-century glass hearse, which was originally pulled by horses. Your support ensures that these items are never lost due to neglect or age!
As the most diverse county in the United States, it is imperative that the stories we share reflect that diversity. Your involvement helps reach under-served populations in our community, and ensures that our exhibits, programs and events give a voice to the different perspectives that make Fort Bend County such a great place to live.
