SAVE A PIECE OF TEXAS HISTORY.
BEFORE IT BECOMES SEVERAL PIECES OF TEXAS HISTORY.
There are some very special maps in the Texas General Land Office,
dating from the early i8oo's when Texas was a Mexican colony
on up to today. They are literally pieces of Texas history. But, I
after 170years of public use, these maps are in serious need of
preservation. Which is why Frost Bank is participating in the
Adopt-a-Map program with the Texas Society of Professional
Surveyors and Texas Land Commissioner David Dewhurst. These
historical maps will now be preserved and copied so the originals
^ can be retired. Frost Bank has adopted a number of maps, but
there are over 400 still in disrepair. If you oryour company want
to help, please call 512-463-51 69. These maps are an important
part of Texas'past. Let's make sure they'll be here for its future.
