Western State Historical Societies NB: the borders of "the West" changed throughout US history. At one time, western Pennsylvania was the west. This flexible border problem is an issue thorughout this Multicultural West site, but becomes particularly clear with a list like this one. While Texas is no further west geographically than some "midwestern states" it is surely more 'western" than them in the US historical imagination. So if you wish to include other states as western, by all means do so in your own work.
