The Flower Hill Foundation is headed by Executive Director Robin Grace Soto and Trustee and groundskeeper John Plyler. The founding Board of Trustees is comprised of subject matter experts in the fields of historic preservation, museum curation, education, strategic planning, infrastructure assessment, nonprofit management, ecology, and research planning and development.

After hosting several historic home museum directors; preservationists; and preservation student groups, teachers, and historians at the home; the governing body was able to determine exactly what makes Flower Hill a vital and viable part of Austin’s historic and nonprofit tapestry. 


To rise above convention, and offer a new championing voice for preservation, Flower Hill aims to contextualize local, state, and national history through the guise of recognizable community figures—religious leaders, teachers, and citizen historians who offer a comforting (rather than intimidating) connection to the past, and exemplify a pathway to how visitors can contribute to their local, state, and national communities today.
