whca Home Tour
After a hiatus of five years, the popular Woodland Heights Home Tour will return April 15 to 17 with the theme of “Reinventing for Today.” The tour will showcase six historic homes that have been revitalized and refreshed for modern living while preserving the charm of the past. Showcasing our “Hometown Near Downtown” to our fellow Houstonians, the tour raises funds for the civic association.
Sponsors: Take advantage of this opportunity to raise your profile with existing and potential customers while showing your civic support for Woodland Heights.
Volunteers: Let us know if you would like to help. In addition to several open committee positions, we will need docents on tour weekend. Volunteering for a three-hour shift earns you a free home tour ticket. Interested?
Tour-goers: Purchase your tickets in advance and save $5.
Neighbors: Please join us for the preview party April 15 at Janeen Cook’s original William Watson home for “Premiere Night on Byrne,” a 1920s Hollywood-themed extravaganza. Your $100 ticket gets you an early peek at the homes on tour with wine and cheese at each stop, and the party which includes libations, heavy hors d’oeuvres and live music. Space is limited.
