Slide Show Austin: Historic Walking Tour
PDF Print E-mail
 

Not quite the historic corridor tour promoted by the National Trust for Historic Preservation - just because it was a block and not a corridor - but fascinating nonetheless.  The historic Bremond block in downtown Austin was built between 1850 and 1910 and is almost exclusively occupied by non-profits.  The pictured John Bremond House built in 1870 is taken very good care of by the Texas Classroom Teacher’s Association.

Historic candlelight tour slide show in Austin at the National Trust for Historic Preservation Conference.  Judge's Hill was settled beginning in the mid-1800's and is so named because the area was platted and settled primarily by Austin judges.  There is the occasional exemplary mid-century like the one pictured above.

Glen Oaks Votes to Join OOCCL
PDF Print E-mail


On October 12, 2010 the Glen Oaks Neighborhood Association voted to join the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League effective 1/1/11.  League President Michael Amonett and Oakland Terrace representative David Klempin addressed the membership and answered any questions they might have.  Past President Barbara Barbee first addressed Glen Oaks in 2007.

Glen Oaks is a large neighborhood of 1500 custom brick homes built from the late 1950's till the late 1960's.  Its boundaries are Rock Creek, Polk, Ledbetter and Red Bird.  At the time it was developed, Glen Oaks was the largest neighborhood of custom brick homes in the City of Dallas.  Built on farm land, the rolling topography and dense trees demonstrate builders working with their surroundings rather than clear cutting them.  This is a beautiful neighborhood.

At our November membership meeting, Glen Oaks will present to us, as per our by-laws, their request and we will no doubt eagerly vote to accept them. 

Please join us in welcoming Glen Oaks to the OOCCL family of neighborhoods.
