The Limestone CHC is proud to announce that a new exhibit is currently on display in the foyer of the Limestone County Courthouse. The Limestone County Rosenwald Schools exhibit provides a brief history of the Rosenwald Fund, which helped to build over 5,000 African-American schools across the rural south during the 1920s and 1930s, and features photos and information about the ten Rosenwald schools constructed in Limestone County.
The Texas Historical Commission recently honored the Limestone County Historical Commission with a Distinguished Service Award for the 2019 year of service. The THC issues Distinguished Service Awards each year to CHCs that exemplify exceptional service and dedication to the State of Texas.

In July, the Texas Historical Commission received two historical marker applications from Limestone County. Subject marker applications for Washington High School in Groesbeck and the Dr. J. T. Sloan Homestead in Tehuacana were both approved and should have markers erected within a year.
