Preservation Month coming in May
May is National Preservation Month, when local preservation and civic organizations spotlight their preservation programs and heritage tourism. The National Trust for Historic Preservation’s theme is People Saving Places. Historic place-savers pour their time, energy, and resources into protecting places they care about, often without recognition. Preservation Month 2023 is for them—a national high-five to everyone doing the great work of saving places in hopes that it will inspire and empower others to do the same.
Below is a list of events and activities sponsored by the City of Round Rock Historic Preservation Program, Round Rock Preservation, The Williamson Museum, the Texas Historical Commission, and the National Trust for Historical Preservation.
