Preservation Dallas Fall Architectural Tour Set For Oct. 26

Check out the celebrated design and craftsmanship of the 1950s to 1970s in the Preservation Dallas Fall Architectural Tour, set for Oct. 26.

“From the Polynesian resort feeling of the 1955 Leon Eaves’ designed Shwiff House, to the one-of-a-kind Palm Springs style 1960 Crownrich house, to the 1977 gem designed by HKS Architects founder Harwood K. Smith for his personal use, this tour will be full of unexpected marvel,” says Preservation Dallas.

The tour also will feature the 1962 Charles Dilbeck-designed Lobello House, which is being rebuilt following a fire. Also on the tour is O’Neil Ford’s 1958 Haggerty House with an indoor swimming pool.

Spectators will enjoy discussions led by urban anthropologist Marsha Prior and architecture professor Bang Dang, and refreshments will be served at the Angelika Film Center.

Tickets are $40 for Preservation Dallas members and $50 for the public.

Ground Broken On First Master-Planned Community In West Mansfield

Hanover Property Company, Mansfield Mayor David Cook, and members of the McCaslin family broke ground earlier this month on the first major master-planned community in West Mansfield.

The property, dubbed M3 Ranch, spans nearly 900 acres and will follow the vision of the McCaslin family, longtime residents and farmers of Mansfield.

It will feature residential and commercial properties. More than 1,600 residences — single-family, townhome, and custom product — are slated for the development. Homes will start from the mid-$300,000s.

“We are honored to partner with the McCaslin family to create a community that combines our quality development practices with the family’s vision for character, value, and tradition,” said Dick LeBlanc, president of Hanover Property Company.
