Join Mid Tex Mod for the 10th Annual Docomomo US Tour Day! This year we're excited to partner with Central San Antonio’s Shearer Hills/Ridgeview Neighborhood Association to tour five outstanding mid-century homes. Located between San Pedro and Hwy 281 just south of North Star Mall, Shearer Hills and Ridgeview developed between the 1950s and the 1960s and boast a fantastic collection of traditional and contemporary ranch houses, as well as more modern split-levels. We’ll kick off the event at Period Modern with a talk by Rick Lewis, Senior Lecturer at UTSA College of Architecture, Construction, and Planning, and wrap up the day there with drinks after the tour. Drinks included, food from Mi Taquito Arandas Jalisco will be available for purchase!
