Johnson County Historical Commission

The Johnson County Historical Commission was organized in 1961 by a small group of local historians. After restoration through the Texas Historical Commission's Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program, the Johnson County Courthouse reopened in 2007. At that time, the Johnson County Historical Commission was assigned Room #139 on the first floor for a museum which served as the Commission's first real home. Johnson County Historical Commission has since held its monthly meetings in the restored Courthouse, and appointees now represent all of Johnson County. The Courthouse Museum welcomes visitors and researchers from many states and foreign countries.

The Johnson County Historical Commission provides Designated Historic Landmark plaques for sites throughout the county, assists applicants with Texas Historical Markers, maintains The Dotey House in Cleburne, and offers support for other historic preservation projects all over Johnson County.
