Preservation Texas has announced nineteen restoration, rehabilitation and preservation planning projects that will be recognized at its 2019 Honor Awards Ceremony and Reception in Austin, Texas on February 27th. The 2019 Honor Awards, the FPC Dallas Sanctuary being one of them, are selected by a jury of preservationists and recognize successful efforts to save irreplaceable and authentic historic places in Texas.
“The 2019 Honor Award winners set a high standard toward which we can all aspire,” said Preservation Texas President Ann Benson McGlone of San Antonio. “These preservation projects required vision and determination. We look forward to putting the spotlight on these outstanding efforts.”
First Presbyterian Church’s Sanctuary was built in 1914 and it’s renovation, which restored the space to its original state, was completed in January of 2018. “'We were so fortunate to work with David and Anne Stimmel and all of the amazing team at Architexas - Architecture, Planning and Historic Preservation, Inc. and Andrew and the team from Byrne Construction Services,” said Josh Taylor, FPC’s director of worship and music. “I'm glad so many folks have recognized the care and love that went into this project.“
