Houston Heights Home Tour…There’s No Place Like Home…
The 2011 Houston Heights Home & Garden Tour will be held on Saturday and Sunday, April 2 and 3, 2011, from noon to 6:00 PM each day and consists of six spectacular homes and gardens – four historic and two recent construction – each reflecting the unique character and architecture of our neighborhood. Also on the tour this year will be an opportunity to see the “before” version of Immanuel Lutheran Church – an historic structure which will soon be transformed into a community center for art exhibits, receptions, and community and youth programs.
Luxury bus shuttles to all of the homes, included in the price of your ticket, will be standing by at the Heights Fire Station at Yale & 12th Streets, where parking is available.
Advance tickets are $20 through April1 by cash or check at Another Place in Time, Buchanan’s Native Plants, Davis Hardware, Eclectic Home, Lovejoy’s Antiques, Waldo’s Coffee House, and Write Now! You may purchase tickets by credit card through noon on April 1 at Houston Heights Home Tour.
