The Heritage Association of San Marcos is a nonprofit organization chartered in 1975 to support the preservation of buildings, historical sites and archives as well as to perpetuate traditions that beautify and enrich the community life of this city.

The Association grew out of the San Marcos Bicentennial Commission, which was formed in 1972 to plan and coordinate the city’s celebration of the nation’s Bicentennial in 1976.

Since its founding, the Heritage Association has been responsible for many beloved community traditions, including the traditional Friday luncheons at the Cottage Kitchen.

  1. The Heritage Assoc got screwed by the roofers, who being illegals, demonstrated complete ignorance of rules controlling cedar shake application. Some of the shakes have already began to buckle upward as a result of being too tightly spaced. More, you cannot have spaces in the next two adjacent rows of shakes immediately above any lower rows, yet they did.

    My qualifications? Fifty years in the construction industry, my first contract was a large apartment complex in San Antonio, still standing, cedar shingle walls and roofs.

    But on the positive side, the new roof sure does look good to a novice.
