Eventbrite - 2015 Good Brick Tour

Imagine going to work every day in a fire station with a real brass pole and a museum-quality collection of firefighter's helmets. You can see what that's like during Preservation Houston's 2015 Good Brick Tour when you visit the award-winning adaptive reuse of historic Fire Station No. 6 (1903) at 1702 Washington Avenue in the Sixth Ward.

Or start your tour in a picturesque Tudor Revival villa (1928) in the Boulevard Oaks Historic District. Built by Katharine Mott, one of Houston's first woman developers, the graciously renovated house at 1635 South Boulevard is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
