ArchiTours are day-long excursions by motorcoach to nearby cities and towns to explore the wealth of architectural and cultural heritage in our region. In 2014, tour participants visited Lindsay and Gainesville, Texas to tour the beautifully-restored St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church and Gainesville’s charming historic district. The 2015 tour featured Ennis’ railroad history and Waxahachie’s Gingerbread Trail. Stay tuned for details about upcoming tours.
