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.
