OCSFA Salon Series: Terror from the Sky

Thursday, April 20 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Turner House, 401 North Rosemont Ave.
Buy your tickets

On April 2, 1957, an F3 tornado violently ripped through Oak Cliff. Its path of damage stretched from South Polk Street, through Winnetka Heights, into West Dallas and Arlington Park/Love Field. Ten people were killed and more than 200 were injured.

To mark the 60th anniversary of this devastating storm, the Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts and Chief Planner with the City of Dallas, Mark Doty, will present “Terror from the Sky,” a comprehensive account of one of the most remembered, yet overlooked, events in modern Dallas history.

Mark will place special emphasis on destruction that occurred throughout Oak Cliff, and our very own beloved neighborhood, Winnetka Heights.

Tickets are $15 for OCSFA members and $20 for non-members.


Bites In The Heights is Back!

Bites In The Heights offers a true taste of Winnetka Heights and Oak Cliff, with food created by talented home cooks and professional chefs in the area.  The night at Turner House will help raise money for our continuing efforts to make Winnetka Heights a great place to live, including the Walkable Winnetka sidewalk repair grant program, the North Oak Cliff United Police Patrol, park and street cleanup efforts, and neighborhood events and communication.

$60 ticket includes great food, drinks (including wine sourced by Trompo Taco and Wine Bar, an exciting new concept in  Bishop Arts) and a live piano sing-along on the Turner House vintage Steinway piano!

Only 6 spots left for the March WH Winos Tasting!

Saturday, March 18
Meet and greet begins at 7 p.m. and the official tasting starts promptly at 7:30 p.m.
Hosted by Joe and Robbie Christopher

Only six spots left! Reserve yours today by emailing

Join us for the next neighborhood wine tasting hosted by long-time neighbors Joe and Robbie Christopher on Saturday, March 18.

Here’s how it works: each individual, couple or pair of neighbors brings a bottle of wine and a bite to eat that complements their wine. As the night progresses, everyone will introduce themselves, their wine and their food. We’ll eat and drink one wine and one food item at a time until we’re all full and happy!

What type of wine? Winos range from novice to aficionado wine drinkers. There is absolutely no snobbery. Bring something special or something you simply found at the store. On any given night, there’s a wide range of wines including whites, reds, sparkling wines and dessert wines.

What type of food? Whatever you like. While some people take the opportunity to flex their kitchen skills, it’s perfectly fine to bring something simply-prepared or even store-bought. Don’t let the cooking keep you away. Just have fun with it!

Here are some tips:
* Bring enough food for at least 24 tastes
* If your food requires a utensil, plate or toothpick to serve, you must bring these items
* You can warm your dish in the oven or microwave, but do not plan to cook your dish at the host’s home

Space is now extremely limited, so be sure to sign up early by emailing Jack Hagler at with the name(s) and email address of who will be attending. If you know what varietal of wine you will be bringing, include that in your email.

Residents of Winnetka Heights Historic District and their guest are given first priority. Non-WHHD residents will be placed on a wait list and accommodated if space allows.

If you have any questions, email Jack at or call him directly at 817.946.8609. We look forward to seeing you on March 18!

Thank you Robbie and Joe for hosting!
