We hope you will join us as we celebrate this landmark occasion on Thursday, November 7 with a two-part event at Texas’ only two houses designed by internationally-acclaimed architect A. Quincy Jones, Jr.: the 1953 Fuller house at 4167 Charron and the 1962 Chiles house at 1300 Shady Oaks Lane.
We are grateful for the wonderful stewardship of these two homes by owners Rick Maxey & Gary Blake, and H. Paul Dorman.
