Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society builds on its annual Home Tour with a series of events, creating a Home Tour Week. The week is designed to generate awareness of the role history and preservation play in enhancing the quality of life for everyone who lives and works in the Park Cities communities.

Calendar of 2014 Events:

Saturday, April 12 – Home Tour 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Sunday, April 13 – Sunday Open House featuring properties for sale in the Park Cities of historic or architectural significance.

Wednesday, April 2 –Third PCHPS Distinguished Speaker Luncheon Series will be held at the Dallas Country Club. Featuring Harlan Crow on “Architectural Features and Historical Collections in the Harlan Crow Library.” The Proceeds benefit the PCHPS scholarship fund for Highland Park High School students.

The purpose of the annual Historic Home Tour week is to show case architecturally and historically significant homes of the Park Cities and illustrate how these homes have been restored or remodeled and updated to serve the lifestyle needs of families today.

The Home Tour Week is the society’s only fundraiser each year. The proceeds from the weekend are allocated for scholarships and to help further our mission to promote, protect and preserve the historic, architectural, cultural and aesthetic legacy of the Park Cities.

The society landmarks architecturally and historically significant homes in the Park Cities, some of which are on the Home Tour.

Home Tour Tickets will be available at Tom Thumb stores in the Park Cities area or can purchased at the door the day of the tour. pchps.org
