Have you driven by an old building that gave you a nostalgic feeling, like it has a story or purpose that is now seemingly forgotten? Have you ever found yourself wishing someone would restore that building to its original beauty? I would like to introduce you to the organization doing just that! Historic Fort Worth, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to preserving Fort Worth’s unique historic identity through stewardship, education and leadership.

  • Educates and advocates for preservation and the benefits of preservation to the public through campaigns, speaking for preservation at public meetings, and offering architecture and cultural tours throughout the year.
