To celebrate and promote the preservation of Park Cities
A House For Texas
Called "the most important house built in the State of Texas," A House For Texas is a beautifully written book about The Elbert Williams Residence in University Park.
Find out more about this exceptional property and the amazing efforts of the community to save such a Texas treasure.
Our mission is to celebrate and preserve the history, architecture, aesthetics and cultural traditions of the Park Cities.
Funds raised help preserve and maintain the Park Cities House at Old City Park, the archives at the University Park Library, fund landmarking initiatives, award scholarships to HPISD seniors planning to study architecture or history, and fund the Distinguished Chair for History at Highland Park High School.
The Park Cities' beautiful aesthetic, welcoming neighborhoods, and diverse architectural styles are a visual reflection of our community’s heritage, creating a distinct sense of place unlike any other. Our landmarking initiative is designed to celebrate the homes and homeowners who seek to preserve these wonderful assets of our community.
