Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Not Now

[Construction of Mexican Food Booth]

Description:

Photograph of the Mexican Food Booth being constructed at the Texas Folklife Festival. It has been made to look like Mission Concepcion. A man and a woman are standing on a ladder, hanging up a sign on the front of the booth. Many paper flowers have been hung on the facade for decoration. Two children and a man are standing on the ground watching the two on the ladder. Another sign on the front of the booth reads, "Concepcion Mission Founded in 1731."
