Celebrate 113 years of one of East Dallas’ most lovely neighborhoods Saturday with the Munger Place Wine Walk tomorrow. You can sip and stroll between five historic houses from the early 1900s with samples of wines and hors d’oeuvres from local businesses. 

The Munger Place Wine Walk takes place April 14, from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. starting at 5124 Victor St. There are two ticket options available, the wine taster ($25 in advance, $30 at the door) and the wine enthusiast ($60 in advance only). Proceeds of this event benefit the Munger Historic District Association, Lipscomb Elementary PTA, and the Boys and Girls Club of Dallas.

313 Collett

Built as a Piggly Wiggly in 1916, 313 N. Collett was converted into two single-family homes in 2004 to great results. Though it still looks like an old general store from the front, this property is a great example of adaptive reuse of historic properties. I’ve always been curious about this property in Munger Place, and I’m thrilled that I’ll be able to get an up-close look at the Munger Place Wine Walk from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday.
