Local volunteers, following the lead of long-time resident Betty Porter, founded the Birdville Historical Society in 1996 and have continued collecting and preserving photos and artifacts for the purpose of educating residents about the history of the Birdville Settlement, the oldest in Northeast Texas. To that end, the Birdville Independent School District donated space in a building at the site of the original Birdville School, and in 2011, the Birdville Museum was born.

Be sure to join us on Saturday, May 20, for the 2017 Birdville Cemetery Reunion. We will gather at 11 a.m., tour the cemetery and have lunch under the pavilion. Drinks, the main course and paper goods will be provided. Those who attend are asked to bring a dish to pass. This program is free and open to the public.

By becoming a member, you can help us sustain our efforts to collect and exhibit artifacts and to educate others about the Birdville Settlement and the original Tarrant County Seat.

Established in 1996
