    (NEW DATE) GHPA Walking Tour:  20th Century Main Street

    On the second Sunday of every month, Greater Houston Preservation Alliance (GHPA) presents a docent-guided walking tour of an architecturally and/or historically significant area of Houston. (This month’s tour is being held on the third Sunday of the month due to scheduling conflicts).

    Sunday, February 15:  GHPA Walking Tour: 20th Century Main Street.
    (Due to a scheduling conflict, this event was postponed from its original date of January 11).

    From the neoclassical Union National Bank Building (1912) to the starkly modern First City National Bank Building (1960), past the Art Deco and mid-century Modern homes of Sakowitz Bros. Department Store, to walk down Main Street is to witness a timeline of Houston’s business development and changing architectural tastes.

    Greater Houston Preservation Alliance offers a new addition to its walking tours program. GHPA's guided, 90-minute architecture tour of Main Street is a timeline of Houston's business development and changing architectural tastes.

    Please note this is an exterior architecture tour only. The tour does not go inside any buildings.
