Weekend To-Do: Quapaw Tour of Homes

QUAPAW TOUR OF HOMES
5:30 p.m. Saturday, 1 p.m. Sunday; Quapaw Quarter. $15.

After growing up in a historical home and receiving a huge appreciation for architectural antiquities from my folks, I think it's safe to put this in print: The Quapaw Quarter/Governor's Mansion district contains, brick for brick, the most interesting, gorgeous houses in the state. It's a magnificent neighborhood with eye candy for blocks. Rows and rows of brick and plaster, renovated to original glory, defiant in the downwind of the McMansion and utilitarian sprawl. Yet, like judging a book by the cover, you can't appreciate a house just by the exterior. The 47th annual Spring Tour of Homes kicks off with the Candlelight Tour of five homes and a gala dinner dance in the garth of Trinity Cathedral on Saturday night; tickets are $100. On Sunday afternoon, tickets are $15.
