Larry Offutt is a dedicated preservationist based in East Dallas. With a passion for conserving the rich cultural heritage of the city, its neighborhoods, and region, Larry and his wife Glenn have played a pivotal role in preserving and revitalizing historically significant homes, neighborhoods, and landmarks in the Dallas area and beyond. Their experiences as founding members of the Historic Preservation League (now Preservation Dallas) and the Swiss Avenue Historic District—and owning many residences in old East Dallas’s various conservation and historic districts—prepared them to rehabilitate multiple historic residences in San Antonio as well as Coral Gables, Florida and Miami’s Coconut Grove district.
