The 2010 Annual Historic Preservation Conference
in Houston/Harris County

The conference, hosted by the Texas Historical Commission in association with Preservation Texas, will be held at
the Westin Oaks Houston Hotel, 5011 Westheimer, on April 22-24. Sessions focusing on themes of resource fundamentals, resource development, preservation advocacy and public engagement will provide valuable information for preservationists in any community, large or small. Enjoy the opening session "King of the Road Trip" with special guest and award-winning speaker Michael Wallis, author, storyteller and self-proclaimed "Son of Route 66."

Pre-conference tours on Thursday, hosted by local preservation partners, will highlight Houston's Art Deco and mid-century architecture. Saturday's post-conference tours will take you to the annual San Jacinto battle reenactment or the Clayton Library for Genealogical Research.

On Thursday, workshops will be provided for county historical commissions and city preservation commissions. This year, a Section 106 Workshop for Professionals also will be offered.
