  2. I was browsing the City of Houston Public Library's Digital Archives and I found the Hugh Waddell mansion in the neighborhood Quality Hill with an address of 2404 Caroline Street. I really love these old homes! The tall circular turrets are cool. I can definitely see how Quality Hill was the original River Oaks. All these grand mansions sitting on high value land.
  3. I was browsing the City of Houston Public Library's Digital Archives and I found the Edward Peden mansion in the neighborhood Quality Hill with an address of 1017 Bell Avenue.
  4. I was browsing the City of Houston Public Library's Digital Archives and I found the Jonas Rice mansion in the neighborhood Quality Hill with an address of 2304 Crawford Street.
  5. I was researching the William Hutchins Mansion located in the Quality Hill neighborhood of Houston. I first started reading the Houstonhistorymagazine's article about Quality Hill. That gave me: In 1850 Hutchins built one of the earliest and what was considered one of the finest houses in Quality Hill. It stood on the corner of Franklin Avenue and La Branch Street, near Hutchins’s place of business on the corner of Franklin Avenue and Main Street. I then came to a City of Houston Landmark Designation Report for the Palace Hotel located at 216 LaBranch Street. In that report, I saw: Sanborn insurance maps from 1885 show Block 25 with the Globe Hotel down the street on the corner of Congress and Austin. The present location of the Palace Hotel building is vacant land. The large house on Block 25 that faces Franklin was the Hutchins house, one of the large houses that were once common in this area known as Quality Hill. Ownership by the Hutchins family of the lots of Block 25 can be traced back to 1853. I then went to the Library of Congress to look at the 1885 Sanborn insurance map. I then located the mansion on Block 25:
  6. I couldn't find information on the old Charles Longcope Mansion located at 109 Chenevert Street in the Quality Hill neighborhood of Houston. The Houston Daily Post dated April 25, 1898: Unfolding the flag. The Lords' Bicycle Club the Scene of a Gallant Event. Yesterday morning at 10 o'clock the old Longscope building on Chenevert street, now the Lord's Cycle club headquarters, was the scene of a jolly, enthusiastic and most patriotic crowed of member and friends of the bicycle club-- Houstonhistorymagazine.org: The Southwestern Historical Quarterly dated July 1967 - April, 1968:
  7. I was researching the Quality Hill neighborhood and came across the home of Cornelius Ennis located at 216 Congress at the corner of Jackson. Houston city directory for 1882-83:
  8. One Discovery Way: Dynamic Street: Catalyst Street: Breakthrough Street, the entrance to the Hotel parcel: Helix Park: Collaborative Building: Mixed-Use Garage:
  9. Nice to see the sunken water retention fields are working as intended. I assume the TMC BioPort project will be similar, but on a larger scale. A new road appeared on the side of Building 1: Levit Green Boulevard: Sino Biological will be listed on here!!
  10. I need to report localized street flooding on a certain part of Buffalo Speedway. I believe this is only a blockage someplace? On all of Buffalo Speedway, there was only one small section that could not contain the heavy rains this past weekend. Hopefully it's fixed in the master plan. Or hopefully, the blockage is removed soon.
