About Us

The Travis Heights-Fairview Park Historic District effort is supported by a group of dedicated neighborhood volunteers as well as a team of professional preservation consultants. Over the years we have worked with Terri Myers, Casey Gallagher, Emily Reed, and Julie Yost. Each hold Master’s degrees in Historic Preservation and have organized our survey and its results and are preparing a comprehensive historic narrative for the neighborhood. Josh Conrad holds Masters’ degrees in Historic Preservation and Architecture and led the development of the Design Standards for the Local Historic District effort, as well as serving as webmaster. Neighborhood volunteers Melanie Martinez who started this effort several years ago, Michele Webre who is the present coordinator, and Julia Morgan (head of the Design Standards Committee) have worked with the consultants and other volunteers in these efforts.

To commemorate and preserve our historic heritage, we are seeking designation as a National Register Historic District and, later, a Local Historic District. It is a long process, but we look forward to the day our history and role in Austin’s development is officially recognized by the City of Austin and the State of Texas.

We need volunteers, donations, and feedback from the neighborhood so please lcontact us if you have any questions or would like to help.
