The Sugar Land Heritage Foundation has a new mailing address!

Boots & Trudy Helcamp donated the P.O. Box 1 to the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation

The SLHF is proud to announce our new ‘historic’ mailing address, thanks to a generous donation from the W. K. and Trudy Helmcamp Family.  The Helmcamp Family has a long history in our home town, which began almost 100 years ago when W. K. ‘Boots’ Helmcamp came to Sugar Land as a young boy.  Most old timers will remember him as a leader in the banking and insurance business.

In a display of remarkable foresight, Boots Helmcamp claimed Box 1, when it was offered to him as a young man in approximately 1952.  Box 1 was customarily reserved for the Post Mistress, she offered it to Boots, and he accepted.  The Helmcamps retained Box 1 until 2016, when they offered their historic mailing address to the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation. We are now ready to begin using it.

We are proud to announce that our new mailing address is

Sugar Land Heritage Foundation
Box 1
Sugar Land, Texas  77487

Our thanks go to Boots and Trudy’s children: John, Pam, and Pat.
