  1. March Mod of the Month Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, March 12, 2023 for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 4 PM. Please help find a new preservation minded owner for this vintage modern house located in the Glenbrook Valley Historic District, about 9 miles southeast of downtown Houston and another in Kilgore. Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event. 8243 Dover Street, Houston, TX 77061 HAR Link | Google Map This intriguing 1958 flat-roofed mod is available for the first time in decades. The long curving driveway links two streets through the front positioned carport with attractive brick screen wall. Streamlined original details are still present to inspire appropriate restoration. In 2011, after a three-year struggle, the neighborhood of Glenbrook Valley, consisting of 1,256 houses, was designated Houston's first historic district outside of the Loop 610 Freeway and is believed to be the largest mid-century era residential historic district in the United States. While visiting, note the recent vintage-styled neighborhood entrance markers, extensively landscaped recreational medians along Broadway and the many newly reconstructed streets with new utilities throughout the area plus the ever-improving condition of the houses and landscapes. Nearby are the 1940 Air Terminal Museum and the Houston Botanic Garden. 2513 S. Broadway Boulevard, Kilgore, TX 75662 (Drive-by Only) HAR Link | Google Map A contemporary style house built in 1945 located on a wooded half acre+ lot in Kilgore. Houston Mod is planning a tour of this area. News & Upcoming Events Thanks to everyone who attended and supported the William F. Cody Book Signing and Lecture.
