It’s a banner year for the Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society. The group, whose mission is to preserve and promote the history, architecture, aesthetics and cultural traditions of the Park Cities, just announced its spring events, which begin on Wednesday, April 11, with the Distinguished Speaker Luncheon featuring Jenna Bush Hager as the speaker, chaired by Tish Key at the Brook Hollow Golf Club. The home tour follows on April 14, highlighting five beautiful and historic Park Cities homes. The events close with a free and open to the public classic and antique car show on April 21 at Burleson Park.
Additionally, Gail and R. Gerald Turner, president of Southern Methodist University, were named as honorary chairs of the annual fundraisers, which help preserve and maintain the Park Cities House at Dallas Heritage Village, support the new PCHPS archives at the University Park Library, fund the Society’s landmarking initiatives, and award scholarships to Highland Park High School graduating seniors planning to study architecture, history or preservation.
