Hall of Texas Heroes

Where Texas' past comes alive through the propagation of historically significant trees.

Welcome to the Hall of Texas Heroes where Texas history comes alive and the past is celebrated through the propagation of historically significant trees. Because of their iconic nature and long life, oak trees are often identified with historic places and events. The Wildflower Center is on a mission to collect acorns and grow the descendants of the historic trees of Texas. Since it will take several years to collect and grow these historic trees, we present an exhibit featuring the photography of Ralph Yznaga, who tells their stories in his book, Living Witness.
