Preserving the real places and the real stories of Texas.

Real Places 2021 Conference

SAVE THE DATE...


We hope you will join us online February 3–5 for the fifth annual Real Places Conference.

As we adjust to the new normal of the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to let you know that Real Places 2021 is going to be different.

History has shown that when presented with new challenges, we adapt to deal with them in innovative ways. As a community that believes in learning from history, we plan to do just that—by continuing to bring you the high level of educational content you have come to expect of Real Places, but in an online format for 2021.

Hosted by the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission, the online conference provides new opportunities for preservationists and officials to learn with county historical commissions, Main Street managers and participants, historic preservation officers and design review boards, architects and engineers, historians, archeologists, curators, interpreters, managers of museums and historic sites, as well as Texas Historical Commission staff, Texas Heritage Trail Regions, and other partner agencies.

We are working to bring everyone back together for an in-person conference in February 2022.
