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)

Our Mission

A historic nature preserve in the midst of the city of Dallas, Frankford Preservation Foundation protects and maintains a five-acre site that features a rare remnant of the Blackland Prairie once indigenous to the Dallas area, an Indian Springs, and the Historic Frankford Church. 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.
