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.

The Dallas Public Library and Preservation Dallas host a public forum on the future of historic buildings in Dallas at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16 at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library.

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.
