I was running an errand, near the center city...we call it downtown, and swung by my favorite mansions. I am a sucker for a beautiful house, especially if it is old.
This is one of two houses, sitting side by side, on a high bluff, above the Trinity River. They were part of a neighborhood of mansions built in the late nineteenth century, in an elite neighborhood nicknamed , of all things, Quality Hill.

This is the history of the house above
The one that sits next door is my favorite. One may even rent this place for a special event, and they do have tours. Your tour ticket includes another mansion, not far away, which I will show you tomorrow. I drove over there too, with my sun roof open.
The history of the second house.
