Heritage House and Mary’s Playhouse tours

The Irving Heritage House, located at 303 South O’Connor, will be open on Sunday, November 5, from 3pm to 5pm. Admission is free and docent led tours are offered at 3pm and 4pm. Built in 1912, this Recorded Texas Historic Landmark provides a glimpse of one of Irving’s early families and their home. Visitors to the Irving Heritage House on Sunday, November 6, will received a complimentary copy of the book “From Rails to Wings” by local historian Norma Stanton. This photo/history book has become a treasured keepsake for Irving families. In the garden area behind the Heritage House, Mary’s Playhouse will also be open for visitors during the same hours. Originally built as a chicken coop, the building was adapted as a playhouse for the young Schulze daughter Mary in the 1920s. Toys, books and other treasures from Mary and her brother Charles are displayed.
