Preservation Austin has been Austin’s leading voice for the preservation of historic buildings and places since 1953. As a result of our advocacy and financial support, 300 historic properties, including Austin treasures like the Driskill Hotel, Paramount Theater, Governor’s Mansion, Laguna Gloria, and many private residences have been preserved.
