Research about El Camino Real de los Tejas events and routes is ongoing. The National Park Service works cooperatively with scholars, site managers, and others to learn more about trail-related stories and sites. A primary way in which the National Park Service stimulates trail scholarship is through the Challenge Cost Share Program. Since 2006, the agency has worked with a number of partners — El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail Association, universities, museums, historical societies, and other nonprofit entities — on El Camino Real de los Tejas projects. Many of these projects have brought forth new historical trail information; new or modified trail segments have been identified; buildings and archeological sites have been identified as being thematically related to El Camino Real de los Tejas; roadside interpretive exhibits and museum exhibits are being considered.
If you have a project idea that can add new historical information or challenge existing notions about the trail, contact the National Trails Intermountain Region staff. Please use the Contact Us link on the left-hand navigation bar.
