The Texas Heroes Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization created to provide funding and resources with the purpose of getting our students interested in learning about the rich heritage of Texas History and preserving its accuracy. We host three events in Acton, Texas, starting with the Texas Independence Day Student History Fair on the last full week of February. Our Texas Flag display lines Fall Creek Hwy in front of the Acton Cemetery where the Elizabeth Crockett is buried. Each flag represents a Hero from the Texas Revolution starting April 21 (San Jacinto Day). Our final event is our Stroll Thru Texas History located in front of the Acton Cemetery on the third Friday and Saturday of May. The Texas Heroes Foundation also provides historical characters (Sam Houston, William B. Travis, David Crockett, Jim Bowie and Susanna Dickinson) to visit schools and civic groups to foster interest in Texas history. We welcome anyone that is interested in Texas and our wonderful history to participate. We need volunteers, ideas and of course sponsors. Please contact us at
