Preservation Houston is Houston’s only citywide nonprofit historic preservation education and advocacy organization. Since 1978, Preservation Houston has voiced strong support for better public policy and protection of our irreplaceable historic resources. Preservation Houston’s members, volunteers and staff have been instrumental in the adoption of a citywide preservation ordinance, the designation of local landmarks and historic districts, and the development of a preservation ethic in the Bayou City.
In 1979, Preservation Houston began presenting the Good Brick Awards to recognize outstanding preservation projects and encourage quality rehabilitation efforts. The Good Brick Tour allows the public to step inside exceptional homes and buildings to see how historic properties can be adapted to modern lifestyles.
Preservation Houston’s staff helps protect and revitalize significant houses and buildings by assisting property owners with landmark nominations and providing information on state and federal preservation incentives. Your support allows Preservation Houston to provide these professional services at no charge to the public.
