As you know, Texas has an almost-embarrassing trove of historic and cultural treasures. They’re spread across hundreds of thousands of acres—from the beaches of South Padre Island to the high plains of Amarillo, from the forests of Texarkana to the mountains of El Paso. It’s a BIG state with a BIG history and heritage.
It’s our job to protect and preserve that rich legacy wherever it is found—in booming big cities and charming small towns alike.
If you are passionate about seeking out, saving, and leveraging the real places and real stories of your community, Phoenix I Restoration & Construction, Komatsu Architecture, and the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission invite you to join us January 16–18 in Austin for REAL PLACES 2019—a Texas Historical Commission conference focused on preserving, revitalizing, and experiencing the Texas mystique.
Featured speakers include Gene Kranz, legendary leader of the flight team that brought Apollo 13 safely home, noted museum expert Colleen Dilenschneider, bestselling author and speaker Nina Simon, architect and urban planner Curtis Davis, and author and TV personality Brent Hull. We’re also offering eight pre-conference workshops, a tour of the painted churches around Schulenburg, and we’re working on establishing continuing education credits for architects and planners.
