Preservation Austin says
During the late 1940s Austin was marveling at its skyrocketing population, the changing face of downtown, increasing traffic congestion, and – a uniquely Austin concern – overcrowding at public swimming pools. Sound familiar?

Preservation Austin’s 24th Annual Historic Homes Tour will explore this exciting time with eight gorgeous midcentury homes in Allandale, Brentwood, and Crestview. Learn how World War II and returning G.I.'s shaped Austin's postwar era, and how today's families are shaping these neighborhoods in ways that embrace their historic character and scale.

We'll also feature neighborhood histories, spotlights on important postwar landmarks like drive-in theaters and iconic watering holes, and guided tours of the Wall of Welcome by artist Jean Graham. Whether you’re pining for the days of pink bathrooms or just looking for ideas for your own home, we've got you covered!
