The San Benito Historical Society preserves and promotes the cultural heritage of the city and surrounding communities. To this end it operates three museums in the same building: the San Benito History Museum, the Texas Conjunto Museum, and the Freddy Fender Museum. It is located in downtown San Benito in the Plaza de San Benito Park. The Freddy Fender Museum is dedicated to American, Tejano, country, and rock musician Freddy Fender (1937-2006). The Texas Conjunto Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates conjunto music, which was developed in San Benito.
