A charitable organization promoting historic preservation, conservation, education and awareness.
The Old House Enthusiasts organization prides itself in promoting the splendid stock of older homes and historic buildings in Dubuque.
Monthly meetings are held the second Thursday of each month, often featuring a guest speaker, and ending with plenty of time to trade old house restoration tips and stories.
Each year the group sponsors the Annual DubuqueFest Old House Tour to allow community members and visitors the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate a sample of Dubuque's historic treasures, as well as to promote interest in their preservation. The tour serves as a fundraiser for area historic places and educational materials.
