The Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society Home Tour is April 11.Four historic properties will be open to the public for the Park Cities Tour.My favorite is the 1950 Mid-Century Modern home on Amherst built by Arch Swank. The home was one of  four original homes built around a small lake. The enclave, referred to as Culture Gulch, was home to four families involved in the arts at SMU.  The original owner of Amherst was a well loved Dallas artist who set up a studio in his home.  The current owners have done a masterful job of renovating this historic home.Tour of HomesSaturday, April 11, 201510:00 AM to 3:00 PM3432 University Blvd. 3444 University Blvd. 3607 Amherst Ave. 3505 Lexington Ave.Tickets $25Available at All Homes on Saturday, April 11
