This morning a press conference was held on the Capital steps by an organization named Preservation Texas. At that conference, it was announced that Hamilton Pool has been declared one of the 11 most endangered historic sites in Texas. The endangered designation was applied for by HPR neighbor Nell Penridge. Below are some pictures I took at the event. And you can click here to download a small MP3 audio file of Nell's speech. Way to go, Nell!
