Our famous historic preservation coloring books, now free to download!

In this uncharted time of social distancing and self quarantines, we have decided to make our historic preservation coloring books available for anyone, and everyone, to download and print from home! We typically offer our coloring book for free to any visitor who comes into the Interurban Railway Museum, but the museum is now closed for the next few weeks (see updates on their closure here). These books include 14 historic locations around the City of Plano, including the Heritage Farmstead, the Texas Pool, and Old City Cemetery. The hand-drawn pictures are from one of our prior board members, Sid Wall, and one of our volunteers, Abagael Heimann. The first version is an English-only book compiled and written by prior intern Swaneet Mand, and the second is a bilingual English/Spanish version put together by prior intern Sydney Landers.

We hope everyone is safe and healthy at home!


Saving Plano’s Treasures: An Adventure in Historic Preservation Coloring Book (2016)

This coloring book features twelve historic locations around Plano, Texas and details their significance in Plano’s early history. This book is perfect for both children and adults who want to learn more about the most significant sites around the City of Plano.


Preservando los Tesoros de Plano: Una Aventura en Preservación Histórica (2018)

In 2018, we added a Spanish language translation of the text and two new coloring pages featuring Plano’s own Tino Trujillo to our classic historic preservation coloring book.


These educational coloring books were made possible by funding from the City of Plano’s Heritage Commission and Heritage Grant Program.
