The centennials keep coming.

The Vickery Place Centennial Home Tour kicks off on the evening of Saturday Oct. 15 with a VIP party followed by the tour of homes the next day.

Vickery Place commemorates its centennial with a home tour featuring several renovated historic homes ranging in architectural styles from original 1911 Prairie to 1920s Craftsman and Tudor designs, accompanied by a newly constructed home in a contemporary Craftsman style.

Vickery Place, founded in 1911, is one of the original suburbs of Dallas. It is a historic East Dallas neighborhood of 1,200 households with a vibrant quality of life and spirit of community shared by our residents, neighboring communities, and local businesses. The neighborhood is a prime location that borders Greenville Avenue and Knox-Henderson.

Ticket cost $12 in advance — tickets sold at Downing Hill, North Haven GardensTalulah Belle, The Wooden House, and online at, and $15 the day of the event at 5555 Vickery.  The “Works” package, which includes the VIP party event and a tour ticket is $25 and must be bought in advance only online.

Home tour proceeds will benefit Animal Rescue of Texas, ART, and James Bonham Elementary School, as well as Vickery Place Neighborhood street improvements such as sidewalk repair and sign toppers.

Volunteers are needed for tour docents as well as to sell tickets and VPNA merchandise at the homes. Both morning and afternoon shifts are available. Volunteers receive a ticket to the tour, including the VIP party.
