Three things to know about the Oak Cliff fall home tour

The Old Oak Cliff Conservation League’s 40th-annual Fall Home Tour features 10 homes from Wynnewood to West Kessler.

Tickets cost $20 ($12 for seniors) in advance of the tour, noon-6 p.m. Oct. 18-19. Buy tickets at ooccl.com or at Tom Thumb stores on Hampton, Mockingbird at Abrams or in Duncanville. On the day of the tour, find tickets for $25 at Simply Austin, the furniture store on Bishop at Eighth or any of the tour houses.

Here are three things to know about the tour.

*There are four examples of the mid-century modern style, built in 1953, 1957, 1959 and 1961.

*Four of the homes, including the one pictured above on Kessler Parkway, are built into hills.

*The home at 2637 Gladiolus is the farthest south the tour has been. It’s in a neighborhood called Brettonwoods.

Proceeds from the home tour go to league member neighborhoods in the form of grants. Last year, the tour raised about $40,000.
