President’s Letter

Dear Frankford friends,

2023 was a a remarkable year! We celebrated a momentous achievement, the completion of the Frankford Legacy House— an exciting addition that enhances our community space. The Legacy House will help us support our mission to teach North Texas history through tours and cultural and educational events.

In 2024 we will commemorate our 10th anniversary! We invite you to join us in making it truly exceptional. Please visit our main giving page and consider making a gift that will help us continue to preserve and share our cherished historic gem nestled in the heart of Dallas.

In the spirit of Frankford’s rich history, from its establishment in the 1850s to the present moment, we celebrate all of you who love our special community. Whatever your individual ties to Frankford, we appreciate you.

Thank you, as always, for your unwavering care and commitment to the legacy of Frankford.

With gratitude,
Kathy Wells Power, President, Frankford Preservation Foundation
