Downtown's Evolving Skyline Architecture Walk

Presented by Preservation Houston at Rice Hotel: Crystal Ballroom & Post Rice Lofts, Houston TX

Downtown's Evolving Skyline Architecture Walk

On the second Sunday of every month, Preservation Houston presents a docent-guided walking tour of an architecturally and/or historically significant area of Houston. Join Preservation Houston on Sunday, June 15 for a Downtown's Evolving Skyline Architecture Walk.

Join us Sunday evening, June 15, as we explore the city's race
