The ALRGVPP maintains a growing collection of photos and information for buildings and structures that are historically and architecturally significant in the Texas-Mexico border counties of Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr, and Willacy. Currently, the database consists of 550 buildings, both, residential and nonresidential, provided by Stephen Fox. We plan on adding another 150 structures from over the border when Mexico is safer. This will bring the total number of structures to 700. Photos and further information are being included with each entry. We are always on the lookout for more buildings. If you or your firm have a structure(s) to include in the database, skip down to the “Submit Your Structure” section.
WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THE ALRGVPP?
There are two primary goals:
WHO IS BEHIND THE ALRGVPP?

HOW WILL THE PHOTOGRAPHS BE DISPLAYED?
The ALRGVPP will be available in a searchable online database, in print and eBook formats, through photography exhibitions, and as photographic prints.
