PT Roadshow to Visit the Panhandle/Plains Region


A generous grant from the Still Water Foundation is making it possible for Preservation Texas staff, board and other experts to visit counties in the Panhandle/Plains Region from November 5-8, 2019.

The Preservation Texas Roadshow will convene local preservationists, historians and community leaders for 75 minute roundtable discussions about local preservation challenges and statewide preservation programs.  The Texas Historical Commission’s Amy Hammons, the County Historical Commission Outreach Program Coordinator, will participate as well.

These informal meetings will provide an opportunity to exchange information and learn about the needs of local preservationists.  Future Roadshows are being planned for South Texas and the Panhandle.
