Mission Statement

The San Antonio Living History Association is an educational 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to interpreting Texas’ past for city and state residents, students and visitors, using living history programs, demonstrations, and recreated portrayals of significant historical events.

The SALHA goal is to teach our members how to promote greater understanding of San Antonio’s rich heritage by using authentic living history skills and interpretation in schools and at historic sites in San Antonio and Texas.

Our purpose is to educate and engage our members to enhance their own historical and cultural experiences while entertaining SALHA program and public event audiences.  New members will learn about living history interpretation as an educational method that incorporates performance elements of historical theatre, music, dance, fashions, period skills and historical storytelling.
