Modern Mile Dallas – 6 Homes on Tour
Event on 2015-10-03 11:00:00
Imagine a home tour clustered within one walkable square mile! Some of the neighborhood’s original low slung Mid-century modern dwellings were built in 1954 in conjunction with a nation-wide Parade of Homes. They received national publicity in Better Homes and Gardens, and in the local newspaper. More modern style houses were built in the ’60s and most of those period authentic homes are intact today. In recent times, some of the original homes were renovated and expanded for modern living. Also there has been a resurgence of architecturally significant contemporary or modern style structures built, including some under construction. This Non-Profit event benefiting Walnut Hill Elementary school is located in the Walnut Hill Homeowners Association bordered by Royal Lane, Midway Rd, Walnut Hill Lane, and Marsh Lane. This quiet tree lined neighborhood boasts numerous second generation homeowners. Tour will be held rain or shine. You may begin at any of the 6 homes you wish. Free Paciugo & Mimosas will be provided by Green Bank at one of the tour homes while they last.
