Preservation Austin’s 24th annual Historic Homes Tour will explore late 1940s design with eight gorgeous midcentury homes in Allandale, Brentwood and Crestview. Learn how World War II and returning soldiers shaped Austin’s postwar era — and how today’s families are shaping these neighborhoods in ways that embrace their historic character and scale.
Check-in for the self-guided tour is Brentwood Elementary School. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the school.
Details: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. $25-$35. Brentwood Elementary School parking lot, 6700 Yates Ave. preservationaustin.org.
