Timber Cove Tour of Homes
Saturday, October 11, 2008, 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Join us as we celebrate Timber Cove's unique place in space history. Tour the homes that once belonged to Gus Grissom, Wally Schirra, Jim Lovell and Pete Conrad. Learn about the men and their illustrious careers from a unique vantage point-the living rooms and gardens they once called their own.

The tour begins at the Taylor Lake Village City Recreation Facility, 500 Kirby, in Taylor Lake Village, Texas. There, guests will board tour vans for a short drive down our tree-lined esplanade, past the homes of John Glenn and Scott Carpenter, and on to the start of the tour.

Ticket prices are $20 per person and may be purchased at the start of your tour. Children ages 12 and under are free.

The tour has been cancelled due to damage sustained by Hurricane Ike.

Before the website was removed online, Timber Cove posted the following:
Timber Cove 50th Anniversary Celebration Cancelled

Timber Cove sustained heavy damage from Hurricane Ike. Many trees fell and the waters of Taylor Lake inundated several properties. Our beloved neighborhood took some heavy punches, but we are not down for the count by any means. The generous spirit of neighbors whose homes are intact is sustaining those who lost much. We are serving each other in the spirit of community that built this place and still defines it. Unfortunately, we must cancel our homecoming celebration scheduled for October 2008, but we plan to celebrate 50 + 1 years of life together in 2009. Stay in touch and look forward with us to better days.

Driving through Timber Cove this evening, I noticed a banner that gave the new dates as July 17-18, 2009. Although it doesn't appear to be up yet, the website is listed as here.

All times are CT (US)
