Cochran Heights received an Official Texas Historical Marker recently due to its wealth of homes designed by famed architect Charles Dilbeck. When we say “wealth” we mean it — the subdivision boasts 60 Dilbecks, all of which were built between 1932 and 1940.

The Cochran Heights Neighborhood Association will celebrate the new designation with speeches from local historians like David Preziosi and Jann Mackey. The event is scheduled to take place April 3 at 1 p.m. in front of the Official Texas Historical Marker, which stands on Henderson Street. Afterwards, guests are invited to tour five Dilbecks. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 day of. Click here for details.
