Celebrate Steeple Square Event  (May 16, 2015). What a large turn out we had!
The Dubuque Old House Enthusiasts would like to thank St. Mary's parishioners, Heritage Works, and all those who supported/attended this successful event, bringing new interest to the decommissioned church. Here's to the next chapter for one of Dubuque's finest landmarks!

Upcoming Event/Meeting:

Friday, December 11th @ 7 p.m. - The Dubuque Old House Enthusiasts's annual Christmas dinner will be held at Mount Pleasant (RSVP's need to be in by December 2nd, and the cost is $20 per person). Our monthly meeting will follow after dinner. You may send an e-mail to dbqohe@gmail if interested in attending one or both.

Do you own a historical home within the Dubuque area, or know of someone who does? If so, you/they may be a potential homeowner for our next annual House Tour, which will be held during the time of the Dubuque Fest (May 21st and 22nd).This is a two day opportunity for the community to experience great examples of magnificent historical architecture.

Most of the profits from the house tours are given back to the community. In the past, we have donated money to several projects within Dubuque including: the Shot Tower renovation, Bluff Street renovation (near the Cathedral), purchased Mission furniture and new outdoor signage for Four Mounds, donated money to the Carnegie Stout Library to restore their original wood doors, as well as purchased books and magazines of historic interest, helped pay for tuck pointing on the Old Jail Museum, and much more. We also strive to provide grants to like non-profit organizations that share our interests.

We take the stewardship of our tour homes very seriously and do whatever is necessary to make the process as effortless as possible for our homeowners. If you are interested in showcasing your home, please contact us via e-mail at We are currently in the process of making decisions for our upcoming event, and would love to hear from you! If you have any questions, you may e-mail us, as well as send a message via Facebook.
