Welcome to the Heritage House
The Irving Heritage House, located at 303 South O’Connor, will be open on Sunday, March 5, from 3pm to 5pm for the start of the 2017 first Sunday tours. 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.
In the garden area behind the Heritage House, the recently dedicated reconstructed 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. Toys, books and other treasures from Mary and her brother Charles are displayed.
A complimentary copy of Norma Stanton's book Irving, Texas: From Rails to Wings will be given to tour visitors. For more information, visit www.irvingheritage.com or call 972-252-3838. Group tours of the Heritage House and Mary’s Playhouse are available by special appointment.
