Welcome to the The Parker County Heritage Society
Welcome to the 39th Annual Candlelight Tour of Homes hosted by the Parker County Heritage Society.
This year’s tour will feature a wide variety of homes, including a Victorian-style home built in 1893 and an 1892 Queen Anne Victorian Home designed for George S. and Helen Belle White by the famous Victorian architect George F. Barber of Knoxville, Tennessee. There will also be a Victorian-style farmhouse - built between 1889 - 1900, a farmhouse-style home built after WWII, and lastly, a fantastic Tuscan-style home. We have also added the historical Parker County Court House on the Square. New to this year’s tour is All Saints’ Anglican Church, which came into existence in July 1875. Don’t forget the Doss Center, where the cabins will be on display along with Santa.
