Preservation Houston

Join PH for a walk through Houston's history

Preservation Houston has partnered with the Downtown District on a video tour of some of downtown Houston's most historically significant sites. Join PH's Jim Parsons for a visit to Allen's Landing, originally the location of the Port of Houston and today part of the Buffalo Bayou park system; Market Square, the heart of the early city; and the 300 block of Main Street, where restored historic buildings house trendy restaurants and bars.

Five award-winning historic homes opened their doors during Preservation Houston's 2016 Good Brick Tour on Saturday and Sunday, April 30 and May 1. Tourgoers had the chance to visit and learn the stories behind a variety of homes, from an 1872 Carpenter Gothic cottage in the Old Sixth Ward to a 1953 modern home in Ayrshire.

Big thanks to everyone who joined us for this special weekend, the homeowners who participated in the tour and the more than 150 volunteers who made it all work!
