2015 ANNUAL PRESERVATION ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS

Preservation Dallas presented the 16th Annual Preservation Achievement Awards on April 8th at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in downtown Dallas. The event recognized outstanding efforts to preserve the historic places of Dallas and those persons or organizations who have contributed to the preservation of the city’s history and places.  Kourtny Garret of Downtown Dallas Inc. served as  Master of Ceremony for the event. The Awards event was followed by a reception in the Crystal Ballroom at the Cathedral.

At the awards a special tribute was given to Swiss Avenue Historic District for its pioneering role as the first historic district in Dallas. David Preziosi, Executive Director of Preservation Dallas commented “before the Swiss Avenue Historic District was established in 1973 it was almost destroyed by high-rise development and disinvestment. The homeowners at that time banded together to protect the incredible neighborhood and through historic district status and many years of investment by property owners the historic district is now the crown jewel of east Dallas. It stands as the finest example of an early 20th century planned neighborhood with an eclectic mix of houses representing virtually every popular residential design style of the day. The Swiss Avenue Historic District is truly a success story and one that blazed a trail for other future historic districts in Dallas to follow.” Hear more about the Swiss Avenue Historic District by watching the video below:

2014 PRESERVATION ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS

Preservation Dallas presented the 15th Annual Preservation Achievement Awards on May 14th at the historic Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff. Outstanding efforts to preserve the historic places of Dallas were recognized along with the people that contribute to the preservation of the city’s history.  Catherine Cuellar of the Dallas Arts District served as the Master of Ceremony this year at the awards event. Following the awards presentation was a reception in the lobby of the theatre. 

The 2014 awards also included a special tribute to the Bishop Arts District. The transformation of the historic commercial area centered on Bishop Avenue and Seventh Street has been nearly 30 years in the making. By the 1920s Martin Weiss had built most of the buildings on Bishop Avenue seen today. The area continued to grow and expand through the 1950s; however, in the 1960s the area began to decline as the commercial area was shunned in favor of newly built shopping centers. By the 1980s there were few businesses left and the majority of the buildings were boarded up. Since then an incredible transformation has taken place in the area now known as the Bishop Arts District, an area that has become such a success and thriving destination for the City of Dallas. Hear more about this story by watching the video below produced in partnership  with You + Media.
