For the past 40 years, the Fairmount National Historic District in Fort Worth has opened its doors to visitors on Mother’s Day weekend to tour 6-10 historic homes in the neighborhood and highlight the benefits of preservation. This year’s tour is a comeback to full house tours following two years of outdoor-only viewing.

The event will highlight four bungalow-style homes, a work-in-progress renovation, and a beautifully restored bungalow currently housing the headquarters of Fort Worth Focused Real Estate. A special treat this year is the M. A. Benton House, a Victorian-style house and Registered Texas Historic Landmark built in 1898 and one of the oldest houses in Fort Worth.

Most of the houses on the tour were originally built between 1890 and 1930, and characteristics include beamed interior ceilings, colonnades, pocket doors, antique hardware, prominent wide front porches, overhanging eaves, as well as exposed rafters and beams and more.
