Thank you for supporting the preservation of Plano's Collinwood House. Unfortunately the Mayor and City Council did not choose to reopen the private option to fund its restoration and will now dismantle it. This petition helped us greatly but in the end, we were unable to save it. This petition is now closed.
The 1860s era house in Plano, Texas at 5400 Windhaven Drive needs your support to save it from demolition. Please consider signing this online petition to let the city council of Plano understand that residents of Texas and Plano in particular want to see this unique treasure saved and restored right where it was built when Abraham Lincoln was still in office. Take a moment to support Texas history in this house. It represents early frontier history along the historic Shawnee Trail.
Multiple cultures and many eras of Texas history still are visible on the property which was part of the Peters Colony. Settlers built the house with hand-hewn beams and designed its gothic revival style in the fashion of Andrew Jackson Downing. Visit https://www.facebook.com/thecollinwoodhouse/ to learn more.
The Collinwood house is the oldest structure still standing within the city of Plano. Let our leaders know that it can and should be preserved and restored for current and future generations to understand and admire.
