Here’s a real treat for all the last-minute Mother’s Day planners: We’re giving away a pair of passes to both the Swiss Avenue Historic District Mother’s Day Home Tour and the Fairmount National Historic District Tour of Homes today!

These two home tours are institutions in our region, and are popular events for an afternoon viewing some of the very best historic homes in all of North Texas. If you’ll recall, we’ve featured Lee Jones and her deliriously beautiful prairie-style on Swiss Avenue last week, and then Tony Sims and his sweet and quirky home on Fairmount. You can see both of these homes this weekend, May 7 and 8, and tickets are still available for both tours!
