Kessler Park fallout shelter on Oak Cliff home tour


The entrance to Don Sanders’ Cold War-era fallout shelter: Danny Fulgencio

The elaborate bomb shelter preserved in the backyard of Don Sanders’ Kessler Park home since 1961 will be on the the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League Fall Home Tour in October.

Check out our story and photos of Sanders’ fallout shelter from the March Advocate.

There will be 12 homes in seven neighborhoods on the tour this year. The oldest house was built in 1927, and the newest, in 2007.

The league will unveil all of the homes on the tour at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at the Bishop Arts Theater Center.
