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.
