ABOUT

Victoria Preservation, Inc. (VPI) advocates for the preservation, protection and appreciation of Victoria County's precious historic resources through advocacy, education and committed action, thereby creating economic value and developing a stronger sense of community.

 

Annual programs celebrating our unique cultural and architectural heritage include the Historic Homes Tour and the Cemetery Tour.

Supported by a passionate board of directors, staff, and volunteers, we seek to broaden our message by engaging new individuals throughout our community. 

 

OUR STORY

Since its founding in 1980, VPI has spearheaded a number of initiatives including the designation of historic districts and landmarks, the restoration of the 1892 Victoria County Courthouse and awarded restoration grants to owners of historic properties.

 

Together, we can effect change. The accomplishments of an advocacy organization are, by definition, difficult to measure. Progress is slow and steady; cumulative change is evident over time.

Today, progress is evident in the widespread recognition of historic preservation as an important tool for economic development, an awareness that grew in part from VPI's active support of the successful redevelopment of the historical downtown area.
