  4. My mom works at the county jail and has said that the roof of the Pedan building along with some side of the building has begun. Demolition of the entire building will be donge by jan 15. The commissioners court voted to approve an agreement among the Harris County Public Infrastructure Department, the Texas Historical Commission and the United States Department of Energy for demolition of the Peden/Iron Mountain Warehouse Building at 700 San Jacinto Street.
  5. If i recall i believe there used to be a Texas Historical Plaque located on Commerce between Travis and Milam on the Northern part of the street. Basically in the area by the new entrance with a canoe structure. It was removed when they remade the street and in parking spots. There is a tree next to where the plaque was located. It stated that 2 people were killed when they hit an artillery shell from a sunken ship in the area. The bodies were removed but the ship is still buried there. The ship was heading back/from Galveston. I have posted the question about the plaque about 8 months back. This was only a block away from the current crypt.

  7. We must have been there the same time taking pictures Friday. Im in the white Astro van and had just taken some and was moving to the 2nd block. Ill post mine here later. I took video as well and you can hear all the construction going around
  8. From the book Houston A chronicle of the Bayou City page113 it has a picture of the dining are of the Brazos Hotel. it doesnt state the year but is quoted...."With music provided by a small chamber group on the balcony, the group dining in the outsied dining area at the brazos Hotel ws capable of dealing with the extremes of the Houston summer. " The picture looks more like a courtyard . Im going to see if i can take a look after work Friday and maybe take a closer look or ask around. ill post my pics here for all to see.
  9. is this tower going by josephines or will it be incorporated in the pavilions
  10. Thank you Subdude. Looks like all 3 surface lots have been just about that for the last 67 years, many used car lots. I want to know what they did out from the corner filling station on Dallas and Caroline. Ill post my pics later. Im curious though as to how this Freds Hotel looked like on Main an Fannin in 1940. I need to dig through old pics.
  11. i went there Saturday afternoon to take some pics of the area. i took several looking east from Main. I then went to the lot that was already torn up. I took several there and i only have one question. What used to be there? I mean there were old steal beams deep in the ground, that had to have been for an early building, warehouse, etc. does anyone know about this. I will post all my pics when i upload them for everyone to see.
  12. a coworker i asked said she remembers it arount that time frame. she stated that adults would take their kids there and than take a tour of the brewery and have a free glass of beer. Her dad took them there a few times for the beer after going to bush gardens. She state it was right next to the brewery and was actually part of the park.
  13. i pass by but always forget to check.... have they put back up the Historical Marker . i think it was for the civil war ship that sank and later some kids were killed due to an active bomb that blew up. if not how can we go about putting up the historical marker back up. for that who took it????
