Stephen F. Austin State University

Center for Regional Heritage Research


We are a community of scholars and researchers from across East Texas who investigate and document the natural and cultural heritage of the region.

We seek to broaden our collective understanding of our shared history, to map the human geography of East Texas, and to construct a "usable past" that can be utilized as a resource for community and economic development.
