June 18 2024

Beverley McGrew Walker, the District Clerk of Fort Bend County, has declared the historical documents room open to the public. This unveiling marks a significant step towards allowing the community to "explore and appreciate the rich history of Fort Bend County through our extensive collection of historical documents," as stated by Walker in a release issued by officials.

The Historical Documents Room of the Fort Bend County District Clerk's office promises a unique journey into the past, highlighting key records that trace the county's growth and heritage. Everyone from history lovers and researchers to students and curious residents are invited to utilize this rare resource.

In order to maintain a systematic and orderly experience, Chief Deputy Jesus Acevedo has noted that "all visits to the Historical Documents Room must be scheduled by appointment." The customer service team stands ready to facilitate this process by providing information on available dates and times during regular business hours and coordinating a visit time apt for the inquiring public.

Appointments can be booked by reaching out to the office via telephone at 281-341-4509 or via email at distclerk@fortbendcountytx.gov

Beyond the physical access to this reservoir of history, Fort Bend County District Clerk's office has also launched Quick Link Access—an online archive enabling digital searches of the Historic Index and Minute Books. Designed to allow round-the-clock internet-based access to historical records, this interface provides an alternative to visiting the courthouse in person. With this valuable tool, historical records encapsulating Criminal, Civil, and Family index and minute books dated between 1821 and 1980 are accessible to a wider audience right from their homes.

The county eagerly anticipates welcoming visitors to the District Clerk's Historical Documents Room and sharing the fascinating history of Fort Bend County. To explore the historical records online, please visit www.fbctx.gov/dchistoricalrecords
