The Old Mandeville Historic Association (OMHA) presents the perfect event for Mother’s Day: the 11th Annual Mother’s Day Home Tour on Sunday, May 10, 2020. Programs and starting point for the self-guided tour will be at the Jean Baptiste Lang House & Gift Shop, 605 Carroll Street.
Private homes in the historic district will be open to the public for one afternoon only, Sunday, May 10, 2020, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
This year, in a departure from past home tours, the selection committee has chosen to highlight a historic neighborhood within the historic district rather than individual historic homes. As we enter a new decade, West Beach Parkway Subdivision approaches its centennial. With a freshly landscaped neutral ground (courtesy of Mandeville’s Parks and Parkways Commission) and its own soon-to-be-installed station in the city’s Explore Historic Mandeville program, it is time to celebrate!
Tickets are $20 per adult (students, $12) and will be available at the Lang House Museum and Gift Shop at 605 Carroll Street and at Das Schulerhaus Gift Gallery & Christmas Boutique (611 Girod Street).
Ticket information will be available on OMHA’s website https://www.oldmandevillehistoricassociation.org/ and Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Old-Mandeville-Historic-Association.
The tour is sponsored by the Old Mandeville Historic Association (OMHA), a 501(3)c corporation founded to preserve and promote the history and cultural heritage of Old Mandeville for future generations. The tour celebrates the cultural and architectural heritage of Mandeville and encourages historic preservation.
Proceeds from the sale of tickets will be used for various projects, including the ongoing rehabilitation of the Jean Baptiste Lang House Museum. For a tour of the historic house museum, stop by Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., 605 Carroll Street
