Preservation Dallas and Dallas Heritage Village present Fifty Years of Preservation: A Panel Discussion
In 1966, Dallas Heritage Village was founded to preserve Millermore. That same year, the National Historic Preservation Act was signed into law. What was happening in historic preservation to lead to these two events? And where are we today as we continue to fight to preserve the past?
Dallas Heritage Village and Preservation Dallas are bringing together Evelyn Montgomery, Curator of Dallas Heritage Village; Evan Thompson, Executive Director of Preservation Texas; and Beth Wiedower, National Trust for Historic Preservation, for a conversation highlighting 50 years of historic preservation at the local, state and national levels. The panel is part of Preservation Dallas’ month-long celebrations tying in with the 43rd anniversary of National Preservation Month in May.
