Frankford Preservation Foundation maintains and protects a historic five acre nature preserve in the midst of the city of Dallas. The site features a rare remnant of the Blackland Prairie once indigenous to the Dallas area, the historic late 19th century, Prairie Gothic style Frankford Church and Indian Springs, a source of pure water for travelers on the Shawnee Trail.

The Frankford site is very much like it was more than 100 years ago, which is remarkable considering its location within a thriving modern metropolis. Sites of this type are rare in Dallas and we know we have a unique opportunity to teach North Texas history and the importance of prairie land conservation. The Frankford Preservation Foundation is committed to preserving this piece of original prairie and the Historic Frankford Church for future generations.

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. Frankford Preservation Foundation supports and manages the Frankford Blackland Prairie, Historic Frankford Church, and Indian Springs.
