Explore the architecture, art and history of the University of Houston central campus with Preservation Houston's Architecture Walks Program. The 90-minute walking tour will examine buildings designed by noted Houston architects such as John Staub, MacKie & Kamrath and Alfred C. Finn. The visit will also include stories of the people who helped build the university — including oilman Hugh Roy Cullen, one of UH's early benefactors — as well as a look at the university's little-known role in World War II and the school's impressive collection of public art.
Meet in Fine Arts Park located between the Moores School of Music and the Fine Arts Building at UH Entrance 16. Free parking is available in UH Lot 16B, across the street from the tour's starting point.
