The Dallas Historical Society is a non-profit organization serving all communities of Dallas. DHS actively collects, preserves, and exhibits the heritage of Dallas and Texas to educate and inspire all present and future generations. DHS endeavors to be the preeminent resource for exploring, preserving, and instilling appreciation for the diverse history of Dallas and Texas. At The Dallas Historical Society, we know that our organization can only succeed when our staff and members as well as the society we serve flourishes. That’s why we are devoted to fostering a diverse organization by creating a collaborative, equitable and inclusive space where everyone, regardless of what we look like, where we come from or who we love, has a voice.
