The Heritage Room opened in 1975 in the library at Tarrant County College, Northeast Campus. The room contains a special collection of local history of Northeast Tarrant County and genealogical information on some of the families of that sector of the County. There is a wealth of information on what that part of the County used to be like and the people who shaped it into what it is today.

The collection consists of books, manuscripts, photographs, artifacts and some census records. The primary focus of the collection is on the history of Northeast Tarrant County, but the room also includes information on the history of Fort Worth, as well as some general Texas history.
