Preservation Dallas Announces 

2016 Most Endangered Historic Places 


The new Most Endangered Historic Places list is here! With so many historic buildings in Dallas having uncertain futures we have announced a new 2016 list highlighting important historic sites which are at risk. These historic places are irreplaceable community assets that tell the story of the city and its development.


The new list includes the following 3805 McFarlin (Williams Home) and 3756 Armstrong (Penson Home). The two Park Cities homes will be auctioned off soon. Click for full details

Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society Scholarship

Over the past five years, PCHPS has expanded its commitment to education in the Park Cities. In 2011, the society’s board voted to allocate funds from the Historic Home Tour and the Distinguished Speaker Luncheon to fund an endowed scholarship with the Highland Park Education Foundation for a deserving HPHS graduating senior. The award is given annually to a student interested in architecture, history, decorative arts, or a similar classical pursuit which reflects our organization’s passion for the significance of historic preservation.


PCHPS and its supporters reached the initial goal of $100,000 for the scholarship fund in 2014. The $50,000 contribution in 2016 will increase our Endowment with the Foundation to $200,000.  Plans are now underway to steadily increase the scholarship and partner with the school district to emphasize the importance of education and comprehension of the rich heritage of our unique community.
