About Us

The Victoria Regional History Center acquires, preserves, and makes available to students, faculty and the public, archival records of enduring value that document the histories of the institutions on the Victoria College/ University of Houston-Victoria campus as well as those records that preserve the social, political, economic, and cultural history of Texas, particularly the region of Texas that includes Victoria and surrounding counties.

Our extensive collection of books, maps, and other published materials as well as county records, personal papers, business and association records, newspapers, photographs, and non-print media support the curricula of the Victoria College and the University of Houston-Victoria and serve the community and region of scholars, students, genealogists, and lifelong learners.

Researchers have used information from the Center to produce master's theses, doctoral dissertations, published articles and books, documentary films, as well as for enhancement of personal knowledge.

The Center welcomes the opportunity to acquire additional appropriate historical materials to help build its collections.
