Texas State Parks and Historic Sites

The State of Texas has one of the largest inventories of State Parks in the Nation. The Texas Historical Commission is responsible for thirty-eight historic sites and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has stewardship over eighty-nine sites. The Texas State Parks system was created in 1923, originally imagined as a series of rest areas along the highways. Today the system has expanded to include state parks, historic sites, and nature preserves. In 1933, as part of Roosevelt’s New Deal program, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was created, and twenty-eight CCC-built parks were constructed around the State.

Hutson|Gallagher has completed multiple TPWD projects across the State. Our services for these sites have included repairs, rehabilitation, restoration, and conservation. Our contracts range in size from individual historic buildings to historic sites with multiple structures needing repairs, structural stabilization, utility upgrades, and accessibility improvements.
