Annual Report Dallas Heritage Village

  1. 1. Dallas Heritage Village: 2005 Annual Report A vibrant future springs from a vibrant past.
  2. 2. Chairman and President’s Report This past year, the second year as Chairman for Jolene Masur and the tenth year as President for Gary Smith, Old City Park made an important transformation. As you can see from the cover of this Report, our Board of Trustees voted to change the name of the museum to Dallas Heritage Village. This move came after long and thoughtful study and consideration, guided by marketing and advertising leader Publicis-USA, which donated its services to the museum to guide us through the name-changing process. The Old City Park name remains as the location of Dallas Heritage Village, the nationally accredited, award-winning living history museum that we have operated for almost forty years. The new name continues to honor the historical grounds on which we operate—Old City Park—while giving proper clarification to our museum and its mission. One of our new marketing slogans on our T-shirts is: “I go back and forth in time.” At Dallas Heritage Village we believe that we indeed exist in both the past and the future. Although we deal with the past on a daily basis, we are constantly working for the future. While we pay this year’s financial obligations, we are setting up next year’s fund raising events. Our continuing efforts to plan and raise money for the Education and Visitor Center will help the museum grow in service to the community in future years. Further, we are working hard now to broaden our first-person interpretive Village programming, with the 1901 Tejano program receiving a seed grant from the Summerlee Foundation in late 2005. Future plans call for an ambitious 1861 and 1901 first-person African-American experience, and an expansion of the 1901 Orthodox Jewish Blum House program. In keeping with positioning the museum for the future, it is also fitting that last year saw the launching of our great new event, Gone to Texas. By moving our major fundraiser off site, we accommodated more people; by putting Texas in the name, we broadened our appeal and staked our claim to a broader piece of Texas heritage than just Dallas. This daring move proved to be successful, as the new event drew more than 650 in its first year. Now, as we are working on GTT 2006, we are optimistic that it will continue to grow into a major source of operating revenue for Dallas Heritage Village and its Texas history education programs. We hope you will enjoy reading about our past year, and hope to see you often in the future. Jolene Masur, Chairman of the Board Gary N. Smith, President, Dallas Heritage Village One
