The Texas Historical Commission (THC) recognized the Franklin County Historical Commission (CHC) with a Distinguished Service Award (DSA) for the 2018 year of service. This annual award affirms CHCs that document ongoing, well-rounded programs of history and preservation-related projects that enrich local communities. FCHA was one of only 80 Texas counties to have been honored.  The award was presented during a meeting of the Franklin County Commissioners’ Court on June 25th at 9 a.m., to acknowledge the CHC’s accomplishments.

“The Distinguished Service Award honors County Historical Commissions that go above and beyond to protect and promote local historic and cultural resources. They are essential to our agency’s efforts to save the real places that tell the real stories of Texas,” said THC Executive Director Mark Wolfe. “The Texas Historical Commission presents this Distinguished Service Award to the Franklin County Historical Commission to honor its efforts to preserve the Lone Star State’s unique heritage.”
