2011 Old Oak Cliff Fall Home Tour
The home at 1934 Lansford is 111 years old and was formerly a convent and speakeasy.
The Old Oak Cliff Conservation League raised a record $30,006 at the 2011 fall home tour that will go toward the organization, which is the most money that has ever been raised during the event's 37-year history.
The home tour showcased 14 houses throughout Oak Cliff on Oct. 8-9 to give attendees a chance to see inside some old, unique and historic homes.
"Some of the most consistent positive feedback centered on the 111 year old Lansford convent/speakeasy property, and the Oak Park Estates neighborhood," according to a media release about the event. "Many knew nothing about Oak Park Estates before the area had 2 homes featured on this year's tour."
The Old Oak Cliff Conservation League is a non-profit organization that strives to preserve old homes and architecture throughout the area and promote Oak Cliff as an exceptional place to live.
