Aldredge House Receives A Grant From The Texas Historical Foundation For Its Living History Plays
The Aldredge House is excited to announce that it has been selected to receive a grant from the Texas Historical Foundation for the continued development of its popular Living History Play performed on the Second Saturday every month (except July and August).
The grant will support the expansion of the Living History Play to integrate additional historic figures who've participated in and contributed to the life and times of Aldredge House. We can't wait to get to work with the playwright, director, and an amazing volunteer cast to expand on the house's fascinating story.

Neighbors Gather For Good Conversation
And Great Barbecue In A Grand Setting
On March 19th, members of The Dallas County Medical Society Alliance Foundation and Friends of Aldredge House hosted a neighborhood meet-and-greet at Aldredge House. An estimated 150 neighbors and friends gathered at the house for delicious barbecue, ice-cold refreshments, and a lavish spread of side dishes and desserts.
It was a welcome and long-overdue opportunity for old neighbors to reconnect post-Covid, and for everyone to meet and get to know the newer residents in the District. Attendance was far greater than expected; every table inside was filled and the overflow spilled out into the rear garden where there were activities set up for the younger kids. The response was so positive, in fact, that the Foundation has offered to make these neighborhood meet-and-greets an annual Springtime event.
