Since its founding in 1985, Preservation Texas has been the leading advocate for the preservation of Texas historic resources. The organization's annual Honor Awards program recognizes outstanding and inspiring accomplishments in historic preservation across the state.

Preservation Texas invites nominations for exemplary projects, programs, and achievements by individuals or organizations. The awards and the annual event allow the organization to share the preservation efforts of proud Texans across the state. Nomination packets can be downloaded from the Preservation Texas website, and nominations will be accepted through September 13.

The 2013 Annual Honor Awards ceremony will be held at Mission San Jose (a Preservation Texas 2012 Honor Award winner) in San Antonio on December 5. Chet Garner, the host of the popular PBS show The Daytripper, will emcee the event. Preservation Texas has chosen a San Antonio mission as the location for the event in hopes to bring awareness to the upcoming nomination of the San Antonio Missions for World Heritage status.

Talk About It

About 4 years ago: Eva Read-Warden

Preservation Texas is the leader in the state of Texas for both recognition and advocacy for historic architecture. The annual design awards program recognizes both pure preservation and design innovation that honors and respects the original place/structure. This is a great opportunity for recognizing the work of Texas architects and the places that build the story of who we are.

Thanks to Preservation Texas for its ongoing efforts to save what is best about Texas, and raising awareness of our historic resources through the Honor Awards. Can't wait to see the winners list!
