Preservation in the News

We’ll be at the Kalita tonight for Preservation Dallas’ Preservation AchievementAwards.  In the spirit of the occasion,here are some recent news items on preservation.  And a way that you can get involved.

First, abit of good news.  Persistent preservationistshave won a reprieve for Richard Neutra’s CycloramaBuilding at the Gettysburg National Park. It’s a slightly sticky wicket (AModernist building in the middle of a Civil War site?), and this isn’t thefinal word, but it’s nice to see the discussion continue.

Our neighbors to the west are fighters in the fight as well.  This Fort Wortheditorial celebrates Sundance Square and MontgomeryPlaza and the renovation of the 1899Masonic Home and School of Texas.

Now, theless cheerful news.  In a tougheconomic climate and under budgetary pressure, the Save America’s Treasureproject is under pressure.  But you canhelp with that and other funding challenges by going to thisNational Trust site and lobbying your Congressional representative.
