Preservation Houston: History in Progress
Preservation Houston, founded in 1978, is Houston's only citywide nonprofit historic preservation advocacy and education organization. From early efforts focused on saving historic buildings around Market Square to more recent advocacy campaigns on behalf of the Astrodome, PH has worked for the last four decades to preserve Houston’s irreplaceable architectural and cultural heritage.

In this illustrated lecture, Jim Parsons will discuss Houston’s history, Preservation Houston’s origins, and some preservation wins and losses that have shaped Houston as we know it today.

Jim Parsons is the Programs Director for Preservation Houston and is a native of Baytown. Jim puts his lifelong interest in local history and architecture to work coordinating programs and educational outreach for Preservation Houston, such as architectural walking tours, video tours and lectures. Jim has co-authored and photographed several books on Art Deco architecture in Texas, including Houston Deco: Modernistic Architecture of the Texas Coast.
