The tour will kick off on Saturday morning, April 15th with a breakfast and lecture, to be held at the Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station. The illustrious Robbie Briggs, CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty, will be our keynote speaker, to be joined by Wilson Fuqua, a noted Dallas-based preservation architect.

Tour homes will include outstanding examples of preservation and restoration. Our first home on the tour is the premiere historic home in Oak Cliff's Kessler Park, The Kessler Mansion at 1177 Lausanne Avenue. Built in 1925, it has been painstakingly restored over a two-year period. Other homes will include the classic Tudor Revival-style Stubbs House at 6243 La Vista Drive, at the top of Swiss Avenue; the O'Neil Ford-designed home at 3201 Wendover Road in Lakewood; the Frank Welch-designed home at 3535 West Lawther Drive, overlooking White Rock Lake; and an original Craftsman bungalow at 5612 Reiger Avenue in Junius Heights. These homes from different eras round out the vision and perspective of how important it is to maintain the fabric of our historic neighborhoods.

Our Patron Party will be held on Thursday evening, April 13th, at the magnificent Aldredge House, a crown jewel in the heart of the Swiss Avenue Historic District. The house, completed in 1917, is one of the most perfect examples of a historic residence in all of Dallas. We are grateful to the Dallas County Medical Society Alliance Foundation for hosting us there.

We hope you will join us for this spectacular tour, and help us commemorate our 50th Anniversary!

P.S. We will also need volunteers to help with the Home Tour, particularly with check-in at the Angelika on Saturday morning, April 15th. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Matt Weinstein at
