Cocktail Party Fundraiser at the Historic Louis & Flossie John House

The John House

The Louis & Flossie John House

This mysterious house at 1924 Newning Avenue is finally having its story told. Come and learn more about it and its fascinating past at a fundraiser for our historic district effort.

It will be an afternoon affair on Sunday, May 23, from 3-5 p.m. Admission is $15.

The City of Austin’s Chief Preservation Officer Steve Sadowsky will be there to share the home’s history.

Casey Gallagher will bring our brand-new database to show you. It includes all the work from our survey done last year, which so many of you helped to complete. This gets us closer to a historic district here, having finished such a large piece of the puzzle.

We could really use some volunteers to put this party on. Can you help in any way?

• Advertising & Marketing
• Sponsorships & Printing
• Food & Drinks
• Clean-up & Set-up
• Ticket Sales
• Docents
• Cocktail Party Music

Please consider helping, as well as spreading the word about this fun event! Contact if you can volunteer or donate in any way. Thank you!

  1. I would love to come & help but will be out of town. We lived in the maids quarters for about a year in 1963-1964. When we brought our son home from the hospital, we decided we needed more room. I visited with Mrs. Johns alot.
