Display Case: Heritage Preservation Takes Center Stage

Display Case Heritage Preservation Program

The current Municipal Center lobby display (#10) is titled “Heritage Preservation” and was created by Bhavesh Mittal of the Planning department (Heritage Preservation Officer), Jeff Campbell and Aaron Casperson (Interurban Railway Museum), with Patty Shore and Ashley Bluhm with the Heritage Farmstead Museum. Bhavesh describes the window: 

The City of Plano Heritage Commission and its Preservation Partners encourage all citizens to recognize and celebrate May 2018 as National Historic Preservation Month. The exhibit showcases:

  • Plano’s Heritage Preservation Program and Preservation Plano 150, an ongoing heritage preservation plan update project.
  • Heritage Farmstead Museum (HFM) shared its exhibit titled “Victorian Fashion: Style trends seen through the eyes of a historic house.”
  • The Interurban Railway Museum (IRM) has provided an exhibit on “Reconstruction and Restoration of both the Interurban Station and Car 360.” The display provides a short summary of the events leading to the reconstruction and restoration of both the interurban station and Car 360. The interurban station building went through several steps after it had stopped being used as a railway station. This included housing and several shops before almost being torn down. It took a great deal of effort to prevent this from happening and make both the building and train car worthy for display.

The Municipal Center lobby is home to several images of Plano’s rich history and culture, and home to vibrant samples of our departments’ excellence. The glass display case near the Action Center Information Desk is one of the building’s best features. It showcases the unparalleled programs, events and services provided to our citizens year round.
