Award recognizes historic business contributions

Austin — The Texas Historical Commission (THC) encourages Texans to nominate a historic business in their community for special recognition. The Texas Treasures Business Award pays tribute to Texas’ well-established companies that are more than 50 years old. The award recognizes their exceptional historical contributions toward economic growth and prosperity to the state.

To be eligible, business must be involved in the same type of business as when originally founded, and have a continuous record of employee or corporate community service involvement. Examples include the Tip Top Café in San Antonio, the New Braunfels Smokehouse, Adams Extract & Spice in Gonzales, and the Mills County State Bank in Goldthwaite.

Created in 2005 through legislation authored by Sen. Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio) and sponsored by Rep. Charles “Doc” Anderson (R-Waco), the program recognizes well-established Texas companies.

The Texas Historical Commission is expanding on the program, offering special recognition through a public display decal identifying the business as a Texas Treasure. Consumers will know when they spot the familiar Texas Treasures business icon that they are doing business with a well-established, Texas-owned-and-operated business that has long contributed to job growth. New recipients will be honored at a special ceremony at the State Capitol on Jan. 23, after which new applications will be accepted. Visit the THC website at www.thc.state.tx.us to download a nomination form. For more information, call (512)463-6092.
