Revisit Our City's Early Origins
Join Us On The Second Saturday Of Each Month
For Aldredge House Living History Tours
Step back into the earliest year's of young Dallas during the Aldredge House Living History Tours, presented on the Second Saturday of every month, except during July and August. Actors portraying the first residents of the house, along with members their staff and community, dressed in period costumes, provide an entertaining and insightful look at our past.
During the performance, guests will be guided throughout the house, both upstairs and down, and along the way, will will learn about life in Dallas during the city's formative years. Seating for each month's performance is limited so be sure to book your seats as early as possible.
West Texas Rancher William J. Lewis, a native of Maryland, and his wife, Willie (Newbury) of Dallas had the House constructed from 1915 to1917.
Designed by architects Hal Thomson and Marion Fooshee, it features influences of English Georgian and French Renaissance styling.
In 1921, the home was purchased by George E. Aldredge, a prominent banker. He and his wife Rena (Munger) were active civic leaders and major contributors to the arts. In 1974, Mrs. Aldredge and her family gave the House to the Dallas County Medical Society Alliance Foundation to be used as its headquarters.
