The Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society recently received a Spirit of Preservation Award by Preservation Dallas along with Jan and Trevor Rees-Jones for preserving the Elbert Williams home at 3805 McFarlin Boulevard.
In 2016, the home was added to Preservation Dallas’ Most Endangered Historic Places list because of the threat of it being sold and demolished after its previous owner died.
In December of 2020, the residence was sold to Jan and Trevor Rees-Jones. The Rees-Jones’ have committed to preserve the home and keep it safe from demolition.
The Spirit of Preservation Award was given to the couple for their efforts to preserve the Elbert Williams house.
Preservation Dallas believes it marked first time that an endangered residential landmark has been saved from being demolished in the Park Cities.
