Dallas Chapter

The Dallas Chapter was founded by Lysa Rohan in 1990. Since that time, the Chapter has organized social events for its members based on themes relating to French culture. Past highlights include a benefit dinner at the home of Kelly and Norman Green, whose house was built by George Parker, featuring the boiseries from a hotel particulier in Paris; guest of honor Olivier Bernier’s lecture: "Fireworks at Dusk- Paris in the Thirties" at a patron dinner; and FHS President Princess Marie-Sol de la Tour d'Auvergne’s talk on the evolution of French gardens. She was also the guest of honor at a fundraising event benefiting the Katrina Heritage Rescue Fund, themed around "An Evening in the Vieux Carre."

French Heritage Society's Dallas Chapter Chairman is Carol Hall.

Dallas Chapter Updates: 2014 - 2015

Dallas Art Museum 200x149This past April, the Dallas Chapter enjoyed a full week of exciting local excursions, as they hosted the French Heritage Society Spring Board meetings.  This week included visits to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and the Kimbell Art Museum, and concluded with the lively Fête de Printemps!

This upcoming January, we are planning a day trip to the Bullock Texas State Historical Museum in Austin to view the installation of LaBelle, explorer La Salle’s ill-fated ship, LaBelle. The discovery of La Salle's flagship, recovered in Matagorda Bay off the Texas Coast after 300 years, was regarded as one of the most important archaeological finds of the century. The entire shipwreck and over a million artifacts have now been restored and installed in the museum. The Dallas Chapter proudly made a grant to the preservation project.

Meanwhile, are also finalizing our lecture series season for the Winter/Spring 2015.

Please check back at this page in the weeks and months ahead for more information about these upcoming events.
