Text: Mister McKinney’s History Bus is an open-air bus, and with only 20 seats, I believe it will fill up fast. Mister McKinney is customizing a tour of River Oaks to impart stories about the mansions, residents, architects, and facts about the community. I am confident that after this tour you will be more knowledgeable about the people and mansions of River Oaks.
