Preservation Austin is pleased to present a series of cocktail parties with a unique twist. Join us as we gather in beautiful historic homes and enjoy hand-crafted cocktails that match the house's era, served up by Alamo Drafthouse's award winning mixologist, Bill Norris.
Gillespie Stacy, son of Gen. William Stacy, and his wife, Agnes Doran, built one of Travis Height’s most remarkable homes. A particular challenge in designing the 1928 Stacy House was incorporating the numerous architectural artifacts acquired by Stacy from the University of Texas, an old hotel and a variety of other places. Stacy acted as his own contractor, with Mexican labor and, in his words, “A site nobody would have bought... for love nor money.” Stacy’s home cost very little, yet it was featured in a 1926 Dallas Morning News article and won a prize in a national home building contest. A rambling, well-crafted villa in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, it was expanded in the 1970s with sympathetic additions by noted architect Sinclair Black.
Guests will enjoy 1920s cocktails and live music, and catering by 34th Street Catering.
