The last in The Heritage Society’s Spring See Irreplaceable Places Series is at Esperson Building, the cornerstone of the future in downtown Houston. Built in 1927, the Niels Esperson building is of Italian Renaissance design, while the Mellie Esperson has an art deco design. Guests will meet Miss Mellie Esperson and talk with her about the construction of the building for her husband while sipping cocktails and enjoying live music from the Prohibition Bar. Points of interest in the building include Miss Mellie’s office and patio, the site of many a tea party; the conference where the Niels and Mellie buildings meet; and a few hidden surprises (including the cupola).

The SIP Series is a fundraising event for The Heritage Society. The historic locations allow us to share the stories of Houston and its residents – both current and past. This SIP Series event is sponsored by Cameron Management, Morton’s Steakhouse and FROWbiz. Details on the specific location and parking will be provided upon registration.
