  1. Earlier this week I was called for jury duty. I was not, as it turned out, selected for a jury, but I did get to spend all morning at the Brazoria County Courthouse in Angleton. There are actually three "courthouse" buildings. There's the 1895 building which now houses the county historical museum, the 1940 one which is a stripped down limestone Moderne building featured in _Houston Deco_, and the 1976 addition, which is classic 70's Brutalist. Anyway, the 70's one didn't do much for me, being sort of a lowest-bidder institutional thing, but the 1940 one is spectacular inside. The architect was Wyatt C. Hedrick, not Lamar Q. Cato as _Houston Deco_ says, and there is a lot of white limestone with little seashell fossils on the interior as well as the exterior. The corridors, while narrow, are spectacular with terrazo floors, inlaid detailing at the stairwells, marble paneling on the walls, floor to ceiling, and period stainless steel door hardware. The courtroom I was in had floor to ceiling cherry paneling in alternating bands of horizontal and vertical grain, and lovely Art-Deco detailing on the railing of the jury box, judge's bench, witness stand, and other railings. Stainless steel windows were moo, but it's part of the Moderne style, I guess. It was truly beautiful; hard to believe I've lived most of my life in Brazoria County and never seen it before. Edit: why on earth is the forum changing the word "m e h" to "moo?" Is it National Cow Day or something?
  2. If I had my choice I would be staying in Katy or maybe going to Fort Bend isd but my family is relocating way south due to job change and I need to know anything about the West Columbia area and their school district Columbia Brazoria ISD. I see that they aren't the best and rated Academically Acceptable but is it just a one year rating? has it been better and are there lots of gangs or problem areas this town has? I know it is a small rural town and most people do not try to relocate to areas like this but I am completely unfamiliar with this area and have to live nearby for the commute into work (not into Houston) also any info on whether Needville or Angleton are any better and what the differences are. Which is a more close nit community and has a better environment for kids (low gangs... or anything else) Thanks!
  3. When I was doing research in the Houston Chronicle from the 1950s, I found lots of ads for the Lake Alaska campground/park in Angleton. Does anyone know where this was, and what became of it?
  4. October. The Brazoria Co. Historical Museum has two lectures of interest. October 8, 6:30pm - Gregg Dimmick on his recent excavations at the San Jacinto Battleground. October 20, 6:30pm - Sheldon Kindall on his research over the years on SE Texas Indian archeological sites.
