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

Further up from these buildings and across an open dirt area are other buildings, including a corral, stables, and barn, beside which several trucks are parked. Above these buildings is a triangle-shaped area created by fences. At the top of the photograph is open ranch land dotted with vegetation.
