Explore “Austin’s Postwar Boom,” Our Newest Self-Guided Tour!
“Austin’s Postwar Boom,” the newest installment of our Historic Austin Tours series, is here! This fascinating self-guided audio tour in the free Otocast app dives into the postwar buildings and cultural icons of Allandale, Brentwood, and Crestview as inspired by our 2016 Homes Tour. Presented by our Education Committee with the generous support of the Austin Foundation for Architecture, it features fifteen beloved (and sometimes not-so-well-known) sites such as the former Capitol Roll Skating Rink, Air Conditioned Village, Top Notch Hamburgers, and more. Each comes to life through histories and photos you won't find anywhere else, allowing tour-goers to visit some or all sites at your own pace. Download Otocast for free today to explore “Austin’s Postwar Boom” along with the rest of our series, including “Iconic Music Venues” and “Congress Avenue!”
