We are back in person for our Preservation Dallas Annual Membership Meeting! This year our meeting will be held in the newly renovated Dallas County Records Building. We are honored to have Dallas County Commissioner Dr. Elba Garcia welcome us to the building and tell us a little about the County’s massive undertaking. You can see more about this highly anticipated project here.
