Mission Statement

Our mission is to research, acquire, and preserve that part of Texas History made by the Wilson potters during the 19th Century. This includes, but is not limited to, the acquisition and restoration of the historic pottery sites, collecting Wilson pottery and artifacts, as well as the pottery of contemporary Texas potters, and displaying all for the enjoyment and enlightenment of all Texans, tourists, and school children.

Current Objectives

The Wilson Pottery Museum allows us to share the rich heritage of the Wilson Family. Thus, we continue to seek the funding necessary to enhance the museum contents and improve its ability to flourish.
We want to strengthen the bond among family members to create a greater awareness of our family legacy. Our goal is to encourage separate family groups to establish a centralized organization so that strategic planning such as fund raising can be better accomplished.  The Foundation hopes to manage the backfill soil erosion problem at the Capote pottery site.
