Historic Tyler Inc. is challenging people to identify properties from photos as part of its observation of May as National Preservation Month.

“Even though many historical places are physically closed right now, we hope to excite current preservation supporters and introduce new audiences to the preservation work that makes our community special by opening a window to a world of adventure online,” Ashley Washmon, Historic Tyler director, said.

This year’s contest, “Beyond Your Basic Brick,” depicts “historic properties throughout the Azalea and Charnwood historic districts that feature interesting bricks, brick patterns or brick details,” Washmon said.

To enter the photo contest, identify each photograph by its address or name and submit answers to Historic Tyler Inc., P.O. Box 6774, Tyler, TX, 75711, send an email to historic@suddenlinkmail.com or private message us on social media. Entries must be submitted no later than end-of-day June 21.

The entry with the highest number of correct answers will be awarded a family membership in Historic Tyler and $50. If there is a tie, a drawing will be held to determine the winner.
