How should Dallas preserve historic buildings?


Preservation Dallas and City Councilman Phillip Kingston are compiling a list of historic buildings in downtown Dallas that have no protection and could be at risk for demolition.

Their work comes in the wake of the Joule hotel’s demolition of a 129-year-old building in September to make way for a boutique.

Kingtson and Beth Wiedower of the National Trust for Historic Preservation will join other preservationists in a discussion of how old buildings could be protected before they are torn down. Dallas residents are asked to join in the discussion.
