Danish Heritage Preservation Society

About the Society

In 1993, the Society first emerged in the town of Danevang in Southeast Texas. Many of the town's residents can trace their lineage back to the Danish people that settled Texas, and today is considered to be the 'Danish Capital of Texas'.

Through fundraising and years of planning, the Society constructed the Danish Heritage Museum, which houses artifacts and exhibits related to the pioneer settlers of Danevang.
