Preservation Houston members and friends gathered to learn about PH's accomplishments over the past year and hear about the future of preservation in Houston at the 2016 Member Reception and Annual Meeting on Tuesday, June 7, at Station 3.
Five award-winning historic homes opened their doors during Preservation Houston's 2016 Good Brick Tour on Saturday and Sunday, April 30 and May 1. Tourgoers had the chance to visit and learn the stories behind a variety of homes, from an 1872 Carpenter Gothic cottage in the Old Sixth Ward to a 1953 modern home in Ayrshire.
Big thanks to everyone who joined us for this special weekend, the homeowners who participated in the tour and the more than 150 volunteers who made it all work!
On Monday, March 7, Preservation Houston donated the restored 1915 prototype of the City of Houston flag to Houston Public Library’s Houston Metropolitan Research Center. The flag will be displayed in the historic Julia Ideson library building downtown.
If you couldn’t attend the program, you missed the Houston Saengerbund and what might have been the first performance of the Houston Municipal Song in a century. The Houston Chronicle’s Lisa Gray picked up the story of the song in her online column today.
