The Lincoln County Heritage Trust was a non-profit organization that has been responsible for much of the preservation of Lincoln properties and collecting Billy the Kid and Lincoln County War materials. The Heritage Trust ceased in the 1990s and was taken over by the Hubbard Museum. Hubbard, in turn, deeded the buildings and the content to the Department of Cultural Affairs in 2006.
