To celebrate and promote the preservation of Park Cities
Oral Histories of the Park Cities :: Home
This project interviews long-standing and influential members of the community highlighting how the history, architecture, people have shaped this unique place we call home.
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.
