Aransas County History Portal


Welcome to the Aransas County History Portal

This site is a directory of organizations, websites, and special events which have been made known to us.  The intent is not to replace any existing websites, but to serve as a simple directory,  a 'portal', which points to various historic resources in Aransas County and to provide a set of basic services for those organizations that don't have the resources to promote a 'web presence' or advertise special events.  Visit the 'About ACHP ' link on the left side of the page for a description of this site and what it may have to offer.

We will make visible any information relating to Aransas County history if we know about it or it is brought to our attention.
