Since 1954 the El Paso County Historical Society has been a driving force in the historic scene of El Paso. EPCHS strives to foster research into the history of the
El Paso area; acquire and make available to the public historic materials; publish and encourage historical writing pertaining to the area; and to develop public consciousness of our rich heritage.
We strive to fulfill our mission in the following ways:
- Hosting and partnering with other organizations for events, most of which tend to be based around speakers, films, or exhibits.
- Maintaining our 101 year old headquarters, the Burges House. We are currently undergoing a fundraising campaign to help with the cost of repairs.
- Maintaining an extensive collection of Southwest archives in the Jane Burges-Perrenot Research Center.
