Maps of the Republic of Texas, 1836-1846

The borders of the Republic of Texas were disputed throughout its existence, as reflected in these maps from the Yana and Marty Davis Map Collection. All original maps from the Republic of Texas period, they reflect how little scientific cartography had been carried out in the region up to the time Texas was annexed by the United States.

Big Bend Legacy

Big Bend Legacy

The exhibit Big Bend Legacy greets visitors as they enter the Museum of the Big Bend. Legacy introduces visitors to the distinctive natural history, human history and confluence of cultures in the Big Bend region. Native Americans inhabited the area for thousands of years before the arrival of the Europeans. The Spanish, through their system of missions and presidios, imprinted their customs on the region only to be replaced by the nation of Mexico. The westward expansion of the United States brought yet another unique culture to the Big Bend. Big Bend Legacy invites the visitor to experience this panorama of natural and human history.
