The Heritage House is located at 303 South O’Connor and will begin the first Sunday monthly tours from 3pm-5pm, with docent led tours at 3pm and 4pm. Admission is free.

Mary’s Playhouse, located in the back garden area, was once a chicken coop. It was converted into a playhouse for the young Mary Schulze in the 1920’s. It contains various vintage toys, many of them belonging to Mary and her brother Charles.
