Welcome to Preservation Boot Camp!

Preservation starts with you! At the Texas Historical Commission, we know how important the people working to preserve history in their communities are. Many people doing preservation work at the local level have a passion for their community’s history but do not have an academic background in preservation. Preservation Boot Camp was designed to equip those preserving your communities’ Main Streets, buildings, and neighborhoods with the necessary tools. This educational resource will lead you on a deep dive through the essentials of historic preservation. Our goal is for you to feel empowered as a voice for preservation in your community.
