Heritage House and
Mary's Playhouse tours
In the garden area behind the Schulze family home at 303 South O’Connor stands Mary’s Playhouse. Early Irving businessman C.P. Schulze built the playhouse from a converted chicken coop in the 1920’s for their young daughter Mary Schulze. As she grew up, Mary used the building as a quiet place for reading, writing and meditation. Vignettes and scenes highlight aspects of her life and interests. The playhouse contains some original toys used by Mary and her older brother Charles along with other collectables. To view the recording CLICK HERE as the dedication of the reconstruction of Mary’s Playhouse took place.
