June 12, 2017 – Visit any small-town across the United States and you’re bound to see a historic building. While many of these homes remind us of the history of pioneers forging the way for the next generation, many of these historical sites are falling apart due to age, running the risk of being forgotten.
The Montalvo House in Brackettville, Texas seeks to restore one such historical site. The Montalvo House, and Montalvo House Market, is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring, preserving, and maintaining the Montalvo House. Through this effort, the goal is to teach the community both how our ancestors achieved sustainable lives, and how to achieve sustainability today.
Brittany W., our Marketing Director coordinated with the organization to completely redesign the website, building a more cohesive, online presence that supported and unified the two unique aspects of the Montalvo House and Montalvo Market into a single design.
Brittany W. talked a little about her thought process:
“The Montalvo House is a non-profit originally created to restore a historic building in the community, and the Montalvo House Market was created later as a way to raise funds, but has taken on a life of its own. Both buildings sit on the same property, but each have a unique, yet connected purpose. The biggest step in helping to create one brand, while conveying the purposes of each of the buildings, was the creation of a new website with a strong homepage that gives a brief summary and acts as a decision point for visitors.”
The Montalvo House – The Montalvo House is a Texas Domestic Nonprofit Corporation, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the restoration, preservation, maintenance, and management of the Montalvo House, a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark. The Montalvo House Market is a Farm-To-Table market that offers 100% Certified Organic produce. It features products from over 18 small, local Texas farms. Both buildings are located in the Community of Brackettville, Texas at 202 North Ann Street.
