Preserving Texas: What's Saved, What's in Danger
Preservation Texas is out with its 10th annual list of the state’s most endangered places.
The list looks back on the past 10 years: six places that have been saved, three that are lost and three others that Preservation Texas says are in danger of being lost.
Among those saved were views of the Texas Capitol.
“When you drive into Austin, there is nothing more magnificent than seeing the Capitol,” said Preservation Texas President Charlene Orr. “It’s a draw for anybody on the highways or going around here. You want to stop and go, what’s that great building? So that’s why we needed to do that.”
Among the places that Preservation Texas considers threatened is the Duval County Courthouse, built in the south Texas city of San Diego in 1916.
