The Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society (PCHPS) celebrated four homeowners for excellence in historic, architectural or renovation significance with landmark awards plaques just before Thanksgiving.
The landmarked homes are: 4201 Lakeside, a Tudor style built in 1920 which sits on almost an acre. Anton Korn was the architect; 3508 Lexington, which was built in 1914 on one of the original blocks of homes in Highland Park. The home is Prairie style with wood frame and siding; 3835 Shenandoah is an English Tudor home built in 1930 in rough cut limestone, slate roof, leaded windows and stucco and half-timber with a turret and bay window. Hal Thompson was the architect; 4309 Westway, built in the late 1930s and remodeled in the 1960s in the French eclectic style with an added porte-cochere.
