Welcome to the City of Abilene, Texas! Abilene boasts many historic buildings from the late Victorian hardscrabble beginnings of the town, to Gothic Revival high-rises and mid-century modern commercial buildings.

In 2012, the Texas Historical Commission provided a matching grant to update the previous survey of the city's historic neighborhoods and buildings. This is an on-going effort to make the results of this survey publicly accessible and provide the most up-to-date information on these historic resources.

If you have any additional information or comments about the survey or any buildings that you feel are a historic or cultural resource to Abilene, please feel free to contact the City of Abilene Planning & Development Services Department.
