Imagine the Possibilities


Cities across Texas invite potential investors, downtown developers, entrepreneurs, and residents looking to be part of downtown's transformation to "Imagine the Possibilites" each May for Preservation Month. This statewide event began in 2017 with the launch of to promote the site and connect available historic properties with interested new stewards. The concentrated statewide effort creates synergy and excitement for Texas' historic downtowns, allows participants special access to spaces, and provides insider information from experienced downtown professionals. Selected properties featured on each city's page are open and accessible to the public, and tour attendees obtain additonal information on local downtown development and business resources. Every tour is different, as cities put their own spin on their events; some choose to focus on lease spaces to attract new businesses, while others may showcase long-vacant buildings ripe for redevelopment using the preservation tax credit programs.
