Three-Girls-on-House-Tower-Room-Tour-WEBCan you imagine a summer in Orange before air conditioning? Experience a full tour with a twist at 10 am, 11 am and 12 pm. This month’s specialty tour will take a look at how people stayed cool at the turn of the 20th century. Nowadays air conditioning is taken for granted, but back when people lived at the House they had to make use of every trick they could to survive the heat and humidity in Southeast Texas.
