Our Mission

what we do and why we do it

Our primary goal is to document the lives and histories of more than 200 families who lived and worked in Terra Cotta. The Terra Cotta Heritage Foundation was founded in 1995 and helps host the annual Terra Cotta Day Festival, maintain properties and the cemetery, and operate a museum. Preserving our history helps strengthen ties between the present and the past.
