We have been through the ups and downs of fifty-plus years, we have so many stories to tell. Come and tell or read a 5-minute story or come and listen to stories.

Preservation Austin hosts an annual tour featuring Austin neighborhoods and homes. This year’s tour celebrates downtown Austin’s historic living spaces in all their forms, but it has been changed to a virtual event because of the corona virus. The tour will consist of a 45 minute video to be shown on Thursday August 13 at 7 PM, followed by a Q&A session. You will have to buy a ticket from Preservation Austin to participate. Tickets are $20 and available at preservationaustin.org/2020-homes-tour. The tour is Preservation Austin’s big fundraiser to help advocate for historical preservation and educate people about the history of Austin’s buildings. During the 45 minute-long video, this year’s event will explore downtown Austin’s historic living spaces in all their forms, from a mid-century high-rise with stunning views of the Texas Capitol, to a converted Congress Avenue storefront overlooking the Paramount Theatre, and will include interviews with homeowners and additional footage of each home. I know many of us looked forward to this tour and are disappointed, but I encourage you to consider the virtual alternative. Hopefully we'll be able to tour in person next year!
