In our archives are documented the activities of the Thanks-Giving Foundation and Thanks-Giving Square, its collections, and its community from before its establishment to the present day. The archives comprises photographs, books, artwork, and manuscripts tracing the traditions of thanksgiving in the United States and around the world.
The Thanks-Giving Foundation has partnered up with the Portal to Texas history to display items from our collection. This digitization was funded through a grant in 2018 and we will continue to add additional items of significance in the future.
