Real Places: Preserving Historic Texas
April 3-5, 2024
Renaissance Austin Hotel
The Texas Historical Commission (THC) hopes you will join us in Austin or online for the eighth annual Real Places Conference.
Presented by the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission in partnership with Phoenix I Restoration and Construction, LLC, the conference provides an opportunity for preservationists and officials to network and 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 THC staff, Texas Heritage Trail Regions, and many partner organizations.
Real Places will again be available to both in-person and virtual attendees. While we hope you’ll join us at the Renaissance Austin Hotel, we understand that not everyone can make it. If you join us online, you’ll be able to stream all conference sessions, and the recordings will be archived for viewing up to 60 days after the conference. In fact, the recordings will be available to all attendees—both in person and virtual—so you’ll be able to watch those great presentations you had to miss because you had to choose between concurrent sessions.
In addition to the regular programming, Real Places 2024 will feature in-person pre-conference workshops for various audiences on Wednesday, April 3. As part of the conference, the THC’s award-winning Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program will present special technical preservation sessions on maintaining historic buildings. We’ll again offer continuing education credits for architects and planners.
We look forward to seeing you online or in Austin on April 3-5, 2024.
