Several houses and one of Amarillo's oldest churches will be open for visitors Sunday during the Plemons-Eakle Neighborhood Association's historic home tour.
The tour is set for 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, hitting the following landmarks:
The home of Marcus and Judy Norris, 1620 S. Polk St.
The Junior League of Amarillo house, 1700 S. Polk St.
The home of Mike and Skeeter Huffaker (the historic Barfield House), 1620 S. Tyler St.
The home of Ken and Cherri Miller, 2200 S. Polk St.
The home of Mickey and Wilma Bolton, 1311 S. Madison St.
Central Church of Christ, 1401 S. Monroe St.
"This is a unique opportunity to see and experience the history of our city firsthand," PENA president Steve Pair said. "These homes are the oldest in Amarillo, often built by the folks who first settled in Amarillo and laid the foundation for the great city we all call home."
Tour-goers can travel from home to home via a historic trolley departing from the church, or they can travel on their own.
Tickets are $17 in advance from any PanhandleTicket outlet (or online here) or $20 the day of the event at any house. Parking is available at the church.
During the day, the Friends of the Cornette Library at West Texas A&M University also will be holding its 41st annual meeting in the church chapel at 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Mark Hanna, the interim head of reference services for the library, will discuss Amarillo pioneer Melissa Dora Callaway Oliver-Eakle.
