Interim Executive Director

Natalie George

She has a performing arts background and has worked in non-profits for over two decades. In 2017 She formed her own company, Natalie George Productions, that umbrellas design and execution of events, award winning lighting designers, equipment rental, commercial lighting design, and artist management.


Her desire to suppress the fear of doing too much and having a life that doesn't fit neatly into a box is well met with the Smoot's sense of dream big, work hard, travel far, take it all in, share what you have, and quite literally fit it ALL under one roof.

The Staff and Board of Trustees include subject matter experts in the fields of historic preservation, museum curation, fundraising, education, strategic planning, infrastructure assessment, nonprofit management, ecology, and research planning and development.

After hosting several historic house 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.
