As you know, Texas has an almost-embarrassing trove of historic and cultural treasures. They’re spread across hundreds of thousands of acres—from the beaches of South Padre Island to the high plains of Amarillo, from the forests of Texarkana to the mountains of El Paso. It’s a BIG state with a BIG history and heritage.

It’s our job to protect and preserve that rich legacy wherever it is found—in booming big cities and charming small towns alike.

If you are passionate about seeking out, saving, and leveraging the real places and real stories of your community, the Texas Land Title Association, Phoenix 1 Restoration and Construction, and the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission invite you to join us January 10–12 in Austin for REAL PLACES 2018—a Texas Historical Commission conference focused on preserving, revitalizing, and experiencing the Texas mystique.

Featured speakers include noted Texas writer Joe Nick Patoski, preservation economist Donovan Rypkema, social preservationist Dr. Andrea Roberts, and preservation anarchist Franklin Vagnone. Entertainment will be provided by the legendary Ray Benson (of Asleep at the Wheel) and the Peterson Brothers.
