Texas Statewide Preservation Plan

Every 10 years the Texas Historical Commission, in collaboration with our partners, develops a Statewide Historic Preservation Plan for Texas. This plan is an opportunity to lay a pathway, or perhaps blaze a trail, for Texans to preserve, protect, and leverage our historic and cultural fabric for the betterment of our communities statewide.

As you explore the plan, make sure to: 

  • Use the vision and goals of this plan as a framework for your own local preservation planning and customize strategies for your community or organization.
  • Read the THC's Implementation Plan (PDF) for more details on how we will accomplish our goals.
  • Consider projects from local preservation groups that align with plan goals, as well as, case studies and resources that are highlighted in the updated 2016 Plan; web link to this document is featured below.
  • Share this with members of your organization, interested friends, family and colleagues.
