Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks
"Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks (RTHLs) are properties judged to be historically
and architecturally significant. The Texas Historical Commission (THC) awards RTHL
designation to buildings at least 50 years old that are judged worthy of preservation
for their architectural and historical associations.

RTHL is a legal designation and comes with a measure of protection; it is the highest
honor the state can bestow on a historic structure, and the designation is required
for this type of marker. Purchase and display of a historical marker is a required
component of the RTHL designation process... To nominate a property, the owner’s
consent is required."
