After Harvey, PH is working for you

We hope this finds you safe and dry. Preservation Houston’s staff is in the office on a limited basis in Harvey's aftermath, but we are working for you.

Our city is facing significant burdens in recovering from the unprecedented flooding brought by Harvey, and our historic neighborhoods will have their own unique challenges. Preservation Houston will be here to provide professional advice and accurate, timely information about the resources available for the owners of flood-damaged historic properties.
