Evidence of Texas’s Hispanic past is all around us--from the names that adorn our rivers, mountains, towns and cities to the architecture, clothing, music, literature, cuisine and cultural icons that help make the Lone Star State truly unique. National Hispanic Heritage Month, held each year from September 15th to October 15th, is a time to celebrate the far-ranging influence and culture of Hispanic and Latino Americans whose ancestors were among the first to explore and establish permanent settlements in the United States and Texas.
