About Our Tours & Outings

The Wilson House

Visit this elegant Queen Anne Victorian mansion that now houses the Preservation Dallas office. Informal tours last between 10 and 30 minutes, depending upon the size of the group. Visitors learn about the architectural details of the Wilson House and its adaptation from residential to institutional use.

Tours are free and available Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

No appointment is necessary, but groups are encouraged to make reservations in advance. To request a custom tour or to schedule a group, please call Preservation Dallas at 214.821.3290.

Intown Outings

Our popular Intown Outings series offers a behind-the-scenes look at historic buildings and places throughout Dallas. These programs are open to the public, and Preservation Dallas members attend for free.

Cocktails for Preservation

Cocktails for Preservation is a special opportunity for supporters of Preservation Dallas to tour exclusive and rarely opened-to-the-public homes. Guests are treated to hors d-oeurves and drinks along with a tour and history of the estate. Because of the exclusivity of the home, tickets are limited in number.

At the current time, this program is on hold until in-person events, as determined by the board, can be held again.

Due to COVID-19, the Resource Center is temporarily closed to visitors but please contact us to look up information.
