5th Annual White Rock Home Tour

The area’s only all-modern home tour embarks on its fifth year of benefiting Blue Ribbon School Hexter Elementary with a wonderful display of mid-century modern homes and a sustainable home.
Architecture enthusiasts won’t want to miss the meet-and-greets with the architects and landscapers at the homes they designed.

To celebrate the tour’s five-year milestone, Advocate Magazine White Rock Home Tour presented by Micky Carr and Janelle Alcantara, David Griffin and Company Realtors, is staking claim to another first this year: it is curating a first-ever exhibition of Ju-Nel Homes artifacts and memorabilia to be displayed in April. It is also presenting a Ju-Nel Homes speaker's forum on April 23. Both events are hosted and co-presented by Dallas Center for Architecture.
