The Heritage Society presents See Interesting Places: Kirby Mansion
The Heritage Society’s SIP Series returns for the spring, kicking off at the Kirby Mansion. The Kirby Mansion was built in 1925 by John Henry Kirby, an oil, railroad and industrial entrepreneur. In 1948, after Kirby’s death, the house became the home to the Houston Chapter of the American Red Cross and was the official headquarters of the 1990 Economic Summit, hosting World leaders. In 1992, current owner Phillip H. Azar purchased the building for his law office, and has worked to restore the building.
The 2017 SIP Series chairman is R.W. McKinney with Bill Baldwin and Jason Roth Fuller serving as honorary chairmen. SIP receptions include great hors d’oeuvres, wine provided by Dionisio Winery and beer courtesy of Southern Star Brewing. Starting times for SIP receptions vary depending on location.
