Landmarks of Longview, an architectural home tour, is a part of the Gregg County Historical Museum’s effort to educate the public about styles of architecture, as well as the importance of conserving our city’s architectural legacy through historic preservation. The tour provides the opportunity to educate in an atmosphere of learning that is also entertaining. The tour attracts people of all ages from Longview and the surrounding areas, including builders, architects, and interior designers. At times, the original architects have been present in the homes they designed adding another interesting dimension to the tour. The Landmarks of Longview brochures describe the unique features of each home, its architectural style, and the architect or designer of each residence. Each year the museum gives out its Preservation Award. The 2016 recipients are Dr. Frank and Darba Jackson of Longview, Texas. This event is open to the public. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 during the tour.
