Preservation Houston has presented more than 200 Good Brick Awards for excellence in historic preservation over the past 35 years — and now, for the first time, the organization is offering the public a first-hand look at some of the Good Brick-winning projects. A selection of current and recent Good Brick-winning projects will be open to the public from noon to 4 p.m. May 3 and 4.

Trained docents, architects, contractors and property owners will be on hand to tell the stories behind the restorations of projects including an Art Deco gem downtown, a Victorian home in the Heights and a log cabin on Houston's west side.

This year's self-guided tour will include:

  • Cook Paint & Varnish Co. Building, 2500 Summer St.
  • Edith L. Moore Log Cabin, 440 Wilchester Blvd.
  • Trinity Episcopal Church, 1011 Holman Ave.
  • 500 Fannin St., the former Wilson Stationery & Printing Co. Building
  • 3008 Morrison St., a Woodland Heights bungalow
  • 1810 Summer St., a First Ward cottage
