Welcome to the Cameron County Historical Commission

You have come to the right place if you are looking for your historical commission. The Cameron County Historical Commission (CCHC) is your governmental commission for Cameron County, here to help you with history needs.

The CCHC, which consists of twelve individuals appointed by the Cameron County Commissioners Court, serves as the County's primary advisory body on historic preservation matters. Its mission is to preserve, protect, and promote the historical resources of Cameron County for the education, enjoyment, and economic benefit of the County's residents.

It is responsible for providing the first level of review for State historical marker requests, and it typically conducts two-to-three special projects per year. Staff support is provided by the County's Planning & Development department.





The CCHC is here for you!
