Holiday Greetings from the Houston Heights
2010 Houston Heights Association Holiday Home Tour
Six inviting homes go on tour in one of areaâs top destinations
Celebrate the holidays with a stroll through one of Houstonâs most delightful neighborhoods and take in the 2010 Houston Heights Association Holiday Home Tour, themed Holiday Greetings from the Houston Heights. The owners of six distinctive homes will be opening their doors to Tour goers Friday, December 3, 6:00 p.m. â 9:00 p.m., and Saturday, December 4, 3:00 p.m. â 9:00 p.m.
Each year, Tour homes reflect the rich architectural tradition of the Houston Heights, which maintains its small-town feel while located in one of the nationâs largest cities. This yearâs tour includes a 1903 Dutch Colonial-style home on the National Register of Historic Places; a Queen Anne farmhouse built in 1897; a 1915 Queen Anne cottage that will be showing off its recently completed makeover and period antiques; and three recently constructed homes, including a stunningly transformed Colonial-style bungalow rescued from neglect.
Tour homes will be dressed in holiday finery, and docents will be on duty to point out the rich history, architecture, distinctive features and decorations of each home.
A STROLL THROUGH HOUSTON HEIGHTS
The whole neighborhood will be buzzing with excitement and holiday celebration. Come early, enjoy a stroll along the tree-lined streets, and take in the antiques and vintage clothing shops, art galleries, eclectic boutiques, coffee shops and world-class restaurants.
Houston Heights Womanâs Club will present a Victorian Holiday Market at the Heights Fire Station where they will be selling hand-crafted items and light refreshments. Donât miss the opportunity to buy tickets for the annual drawing for a beautiful quilt, lovingly made by the members to benefit the clubâs philanthropic endeavors. Membership information will be available, Saturday, December 4, 1:00 p.m. â 9:00 p.m. Mistletoe Madness is a great chance to âEat, drink, shop & be merry!â Experience the live entertainment while visiting the many shops, restaurants and galleries in the area, Saturday, Noon – 6:00 p.m. First Saturday Arts Market will be set up at 548 W. 19th Street, the perfect venue to view original art, featuring artists from Houston and around the state; and Pet Adoptions on Heights Boulevard will have the perfect furry friend to take home.
