Meet Morgan Harrison, an enthusiastic advocate of local preservation.
An enthusiastic advocate of local preservation, Morgan has been a member of the Preservation Dallas Board of Trustees since 2019. This June she was appointed as Vice President of Preservation Issues for Preservation Dallas, where she will help lead advocacy efforts for the organization. Morgan has also served over a decade as a professional member on various City of Dallas Historic District Task Forces – previously on the Swiss / Munger and Junius Heights and currently on the Central Business District / Individual Landmark / West End Task Force.
As a multi-generational Dallas native, Morgan is passionate about preserving the historic and cultural resources that the city has to offer as they are integral to her family history. This passion for history and culture influenced both her travel choices and her field of study as she entered college and graduate school. An avid student, Morgan holds three degrees: a BA in Art History from Denison University, an MFA in Architectural History from Savannah College of Art and Design, and a Masters of Architecture with a Certificate in Historic Preservation from Texas A&M University.
After graduating from Texas A&M, Morgan returned home to Dallas and worked for Quimby McCoy Preservation Architecture, Habitat for Humanity, and Humphreys & Partners Architects before joining GFF in 2014. She is currently a Project Leader working in the institutional sector on both church and historic preservation projects.
The GFF Historic Preservation Team is an experienced group of design professionals who focus on the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of historic properties.
