Wolfe and Higgins Tour 2017

Sponsor the 2017 Wolfe & Higgins Homes Tour

Pre-Tour Party on August 25 2017, 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM

PAC*SJ presents its third city-wide architectural home tour of the work of Frank Delos Wolfe. In 1918, Wolfe partnered with William Ernest Higgins. Wolfe & Higgins' signature style was sumptuously decorative Spanish Revival, characterized by red tile roofs, triple arched windows, and ornate door surrounds. The firm produced hundreds of buildings throughout the Santa Clara Valley until its end in 1931. Eight of these historic Spanish Revival buildings are open for a one-day city-wide tour in San Jose, most of them never before on tour. Don't miss this opportunity to see a style that shaped San Jose in the 1920s.

Support the Preservation Action Council of San Jose by attending our kickoff party the night before the Wolfe & Higgins citywide homes tour. Held in a 1916 house designed by William Ernest Higgins before he partnered with Frank Wolfe, this is one of only five known buildings still standing that are the work of William Higgins. THIS HOUSE WILL NOT BE ON THE TOUR! Friday night is the only chance to see the inside of the stunning Gross-Low "honeymoon house."

We expect a record number of visitors to attend the Tour and party.  We are offering you an opportunity to publicize your services and show support for the educational and advocacy activities of PAC*SJ, a 501(c)(3) organization.
