Panhandle-Plains Historical Society Charity Profile

When Hattie Anderson moved to Canyon, Texas, in 1920 to teach history at West Texas State Normal College, she was captivated by what she found. It was a historian's dream - a bustling city on the grow, eager young college students preparing to be teachers and a significant number of the area's original settlers still actively involved in ranching, farming, and business.

Mission: To collect, preserve, conserve, exhibit and interpret the historical, ethnological, cultural, and scientific heritage of the Panhandle-Plains region of Texas and related areas of the Southwest; to operate and maintain the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Texas A&M University Board of Regents; to enlist interest and support in achieving the mission; and to undertake other related activities.

Panhandle-Plains Historical Society Volunteer Information

Volunteering at PPHM comes in a variety of forms. Docents - the word meaning museum tour guide - show school groups through specific parts of the museum and narrate exhibits. Special event volunteers help with grand events like Christmas Open House, where volunteers hand out Christmas cookies to guests and dress in period clothing. If a particular area of PPHM is of more interest, volunteers can dedicate their time to a specific collection. Continuing education is granted on a regular basis for all volunteers to learn specific characteristics of an exhibit and its artifacts, or about the museum in general.
