The Old Oak Cliff Conservation League has always had a mouthful of a name, which was even more cumbersome as an acronym — OOCCL. But that’s all in the past now, as the organization seeks to focus on the area’s heritage — Heritage Oak Cliff, to be exact.
This year’s historic home tour will show off the architectural diversity of Oak Cliff on Oct. 21 and 22, from noon to 6 p.m. both days. Tickets can be purchased through the website (which is still ooccl.org for now) as well as Kessler Baking Studio, Lucky Dog Books or at participating Tom Thumbs (315 S Hampton, 6333 Mockingbird, 522 Preston Royal Center, and 633 W. Wheatland in Duncanville).
Read on to preview this year’s tour homes, which includes the impeccably restored Hutsell-designed mansion perched on a hill at 1545 W. Colorado Blvd.
