Join Preservation Houston for a unique insider’s look at a selection of current and former Good Brick Award-winning restoration projects during the 2016 Good Brick Tour, noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 30 and May 1.

The Good Brick Tour is your chance to explore these outstanding examples of historic preservation and to meet the property owners, architects and designers who guided them. Admission to the tour includes entry to all featured locations on both tour dates. (One-time admissions to single locations will also be available at a reduced price during the tour weekend
Tour locations
•1203 Edwards Street in the First Ward, an 1899 Victorian cottage
•716 Sabine Street in the Old Sixth Ward Historic District, an 1872 Carpenter Gothic cottage and compatible new construction
•3405 Meadow Lake Lane in River Oaks, a distinctive 1947 John Staub-designed home
•3229 Groveland Lane in River Oaks, a 1936 Regency Revival-style Birdsall Briscoe home
•4111 Drummond Street in Ayrshire/Braes Heights, a 1953 contemporary home by Lars Bang

I think old houses are cool, so the two homes in First and Sixth Ward will be wonderful to view. A fully restored mid century modern home though just pulls you back to a simpler time.

For you MCM fans, a couple of places to look for these homes:
Oak Forest Homes,   Timbergrove Manor/Lazybrook, Spring Branch
