While the changing of the seasons prompts spring cleaning for many, some homeowners in Northaven, Park Cities, and Turtle Creek face an even bigger task: readying their homes for visits by strangers.

The Kramer Elementary PTA, the Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society, and the Turtle Creek Association all have home tours planned in April.

Enjoy beautifully designed and sometimes historic homes while supporting such causes as education, historic preservation, and the projection of 87-acres of greenways and parklands throughout the Turtle Creek Corridor.
