Please join WAHA “On the Avenues” at our 31st Annual Holiday Tour and Progressive Dinner!
This year’s tour opens the doors to six historic properties in the West Adams Avenues neighborhood of the Historic West Adams District. Located west of Arlington, and between Adams and the Rosa Parks/10 Freeway, this popular neighborhood is home to a large variety of architectural styles and wonderful neighbors. Each year the West Adams Avenues association hosts its own jazz festival at the end of summer.
The On the Avenues Holiday Tour takes place on Saturday and Sunday, December 2 and 3, with the progressive dinner tours beginning at 3:00 p.m. each day and departing approximately every 45 minutes after that. Please be sure to arrive early enough to tour the first house where you will be checking in. A separate course of our festive holiday menu will be served at each house, and will feature appetizers (and champagne!), soup, salad, entrée with sides, and dessert. The tour houses include a unique Arthur Heinemann-designed Arts and Crafts home and a lovely Spanish Revival filled with charming, eclectic artwork.
No high heels, please. And be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as this is a walking tour.
