“Brackenridge Park Conservancy is honored to lead fundraising and restoration efforts for Miraflores,” said Terry Brechtel, Interim CEO for Brackenridge Park Conservancy. “The San Antonio Conservation Society saved the cultural site, and we are determined to carry their work forward by preserving the site’s art and cultural significance on this bicultural site. Community feedback is invaluable in reimagining this space for future generations. We look forward to hearing ideas which can help shape plans for this significant cultural site. Once a plan is determined, we will begin raising funds to see this through fruition. Meanwhile, we are excited to share that a walkway has been restored connecting Miraflores to Brackenridge Park. These small steps will create a richer and more connected park system that tells the story of San Antonio and its people.”

National Historic Preservation Month: The National Trust for Historic Preservation created National Historic Preservation Month in 1973 to highlight local preservation efforts. Preservation Month is observed each year in May and celebrates community culture and the historic structures that have shaped a local sense of place.
