Great interior!

Thank you, Preservation Dallas and Forest Forward for hosting the tour! It helps to see the “bones” of a building to understand its history!!

I'm a real estate photographer who makes 3D immersive tours. If Forest Theater wants a 3D tour, get in touch with me. I could do a before and after as well.

Thank you for the opportunity to tour this morning! ❤️

It was wonderful to see and hoping you make your goal of restoration by 2024! Amazing building and great opportunity for the community.

The Baldwin House at 6015 Bryan Parkway is such a great example of restoration done the right way! The original porch had been removed by a previous owner, so a new one was built that matched the architectural style of the house. The original entry was also restored, and several other corrections to past inappropriate changes were made to restore this house to its former glory. Do you know of a Dallas renovation completed in the past year that deserves to be recognized? Consider nominating it for a Preservation Achievement Award! Nominations are due in exactly one week on January 28th. Please visit our website for full details: preservationdallas.org/2022-awards ... See MoreSee Less

Who in their right mind would take out a porch like that?! The restoration looks great.
