Preserving the past for future generations.

The year was 1975. On the corner of 30th and Haswell in Bryan an 1870s Italianate-villa-style brick home sat, slowly falling into ruin, in very real danger of being bulldozed. A small group of concerned neighbors banded together to save this endangered local landmark, their effort ultimately giving a new lease on life to the historic Cavitt House, named after its builder, William Richard Cavitt. In 1976, the Cavitt House received its National Historic marker.

 

Preserving this architectural treasure, considered to be one of oldest large homes in Brazos County, became the catalyst for forming the Citizens for Historic Preservation, re-named the Brazos Heritage Society in 1993. Building on this first successful preservation effort, the Brazos Heritage Society has continued its mission to preserve and restore valuable historical resources in Brazos County, and educate the County’s citizens about the value of our local history.

We Value Your Support!

Currently, we are still planning on holding our annual Independence Day event in Heritage Park on Saturday, July 4. However, we will continue monitoring recommendations and developments with the COVID-19 virus and make our final decision in mid June at the latest.
