Six Historic Homes will be on View in Historic Houston Neighborhood
HOUSTON, Dec. 21, 2010 — The 2011 Woodland Heights Home Tour will take place March 26 and 27, 2011, from 1 to 6 p.m., in the historic Woodland Heights neighborhood near downtown Houston. The tour, hosted by the Woodland Heights Civic Association, will include six beautiful homes representing a range of sizes and architectural styles, from a traditional restoration to a modern loft in a converted church.
The Woodland Heights neighborhood is one of the oldest and most historic in Houston. When platted in 1907 by William A. Wilson, the neighborhood was a 20-minute streetcar ride north of downtown Houston. Many of the original homes – reflecting architectural styles including the late Queen Anne, Craftsman, Arts & Crafts, Colonial and Greek Revival – have been lovingly restored.
The 2011 home tour activities will include a preview party on Friday evening, March 25, and a preservation fair on Sunday, March 27, co-hosted with Friends of Woodland Park. Tickets for the home tour will go on sale beginning Feb. 1, 2011, at www.woodland-heights.org. Tickets will be $15 in advance and $20 on the day of the event.
