Ten Year Anniversary!
In spring of 2010, toward the end of the restoration of Frankford Church we discovered a small, forgotten remnant of the Blackland Prairie. We stopped mowing the area and within a short time native prairie grasses and flowers sprang to life on this land never broken by a plow. Soon afterwards we uncovered the location of Indian Springs allowing it to flow again.
In honor of the ten year anniversary of the Frankford “renaissance” Frankford Preservation Foundation is celebrating this important milestone at each of our 2020 events. We hope you will be there to help us celebrate!
We offer seasonal tours of the native prairie meadows to foster awareness of the significance of the Blackland Prairie. We also offer educational programs for schools.

The disappearance of a major natural unit of vegetation from the face of the earth is an event worthy of causing pause and consideration by any nation. Yet so gradually has the prairie been conquered by the breaking plow, the tractor, and the overcrowded herds of man…that scant attention has been given to the significance of this endless grassland or the course of its destruction. Civilized man is destroying a masterpiece of nature without recording for posterity that which he has destroyed. John Ernest Weaver, North American Prairie (1954)
A historic nature preserve in the midst of the city of Dallas, Frankford Preservation Foundation conserves, protects and maintains its five acre site. The site features a rare remnant of the Blackland Prairie once indigenous to the Dallas area and Indian Springs. The Frankford Preservation Foundation conducts charitable, educational, and cultural events including seasonal tours of its native prairie meadows to foster an awareness of the significance of the Blackland Prairie and early North Texas history.
