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
• Cocktail Party Music
Please consider helping, as well as spreading the word about this fun event! Contact Michele@HistoricTravisHeights.org if you can volunteer or donate in any way. Thank you!

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.
That’s so interesting, Darlene. Do you have any photos of the maid’s quarters or any others from that time you would be able to share?–mm
