  6. I was looking into the works of Kenneth Franzheim and discovered a rendering for San Jacinto Memorial Hospital located in Baytown. Looks like the hospital was built in 1947 by W.S. Bellows. Was the hospital purchased by Houston Methodist and eventually demolished? I'm not that familiar with Baytown.
  7. I was browsing the newspaper The Tri-Cities Sun dated May 6, 1932 and came across an article for the Tri-Cities Speedway, located within he Tri-Cities Fair Park. Auto Races Sunday 3 P.M.

The new five-eighth-mile speedway at the Tri-Cities Fair Park is being carefully groomed today in preparation for the second auto races to be held Sunday beginning at 3 p.m., according to Nolan Wells, manager of the park.

The parking ground around the track has also been drained. The home stretch will be oiled to keep down the dust. A variety of races will be offered speed fans Sunday with a program consisting of give professional auto races, a motor cycle-
  8. While driving down Bayway Drive in Baytown to check out the giant crane(Thanks, Hindesky), I saw a couple of buildings of interest. First up, the gymnasium of the old Baytown Junior High School, which appears to have been repurposed, but is behind a fence stating that it's inside a Federally Protected Energy Facility. I am trying to find additional information on the building. The school is now further North on Bayway, in a new building. I am going to guess that the building dates to before the merger and incorporation of Pelly, Goose Creek, and Old Baytown(which wasn't incorporated) into Baytown as we know it today. https://www.google.com/maps/@29.7298751,-95.0106173,3a,75y,235.6h,84.31t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1st9k4rPL2sCpsm46pQow-IA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192 Here's the Baytown Post Office, nearby on Market Street https://www.google.com/maps/@29.7308425,-95.0073751,3a,75y,335.08h,86.77t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1scaj2_uop8Wm4q6OrfV1dLA!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo3.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3Dcaj2_uop8Wm4q6OrfV1dLA%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D230.95088%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i16384!8i8192 This looks like the Heights Library in some respects. I wasn't able to get pictures, mostly due to not thinking about it while I was looking for the crane, and because the light was awful.

  11. A play was filled in the past week or so on a Krispy Kreme in Baytown. Is this one of the first ones to return?
  12. Anybody have any memories & info. on Circus World toy stores.Hope to hear from you. Edit: Circus World was a retail toy store that was located in two Houston-area malls. The Westwood Mall in Houston and the San Jacinto Mall in Baytown. An advertisement from the newspaper The Baytown Sun dated November 29, 1981:
  13. Received this release today from the Harris County Fire Marshal: ----------- Pranksters Set Off Acid Bombs Acid bombs exploded in a Baytown neighborhood in the 5400 block of Thyme just before midnight last night. Two men are in custody while a third is still being sought. The Harris County Fire Marshal's Office, Baytown Fire Department, Baytown Bomb Squad and the Harris County Sheriff's Department all responded to the home of an off-duty Baytown police officer. "The suspects set off two of the improvised devices in one of the suspect's own back yard," said Investigator James Bolton with the Harris County Fire Marshal's Office. "A third device was thrown in the officer's back yard. It did not go off and had to be "rendered safe' by the Baytown Bomb Squad." No one was injured and at least one of the suspects lives next door to the officer. All three will be charged with a third-degree felony involving an explosive weapon. "These men thought it was a prank," added Bolton. "But anyone within close proximity to the devices, when detonated, could have been seriously injured. This is a serious crime. "It's no laughing matter."
  14. Baytown Bus Service Expands for Summer 2010 Seven New Stops to Include Baytown Water Park - Fares Unchanged Effective June 01, 2010 Harris County Transit will begin operating a revised summer schedule for the Baytown Fixed Route Bus Service. These changes will offer Baytown residents more destinations to shopping locations such as HEB as well as recreational facilities including the YMCA and the new Baytown Water Park. In addition to these changes two new transfer points serve to connect Route 1 and Route 3. The changes are the following: Route 1 - Garth Road: The regular north/south bound routes will continue on Garth Road with the exception of the eastbound turn on Baker Street to 5300 East Road, home of the new Pirates Bay Water Park. The route will then head west on South Road back to Garth to resume the regular route. Travel time on this route is approximately 50 minutes. Route 2 - Lee College: No changes are made to this route. The Lee College route will continue its east/west runs along Main Street, Market Street and from Park Street to Lee College. The same stops at Lee College, Baytown City Hall and numerous retail locations will continue. Transfers will continue to be made at Park Street and Garth Road. Route 3 - North Alexander/Cedar Bayou: The original route to Lobit Street at N. Main, then north on N. Main to the YMCA at Rollingbrook Street and Baker Street east of Garth Road will continue. Additionally, the route will extend to Main Street where 6 new stops are being added. These new stops are HEB at Cedar Bayou and Main Street, YMCA at Wye Road, Bob Smith and Main Street, Food Town on Main Street, Birdsong Apartments on Garth Road and, the west side of Garth Road (across from Walgreens). The extended route will run both north and southbound. The two additional transfer points connecting Route 1 and Route 3 are located at Baker Street and Garth Road, and Rollingbrook and Garth Road. The existing transfer points at Garth Road and Park Street and San Jacinto Mall will continue. The route changes were created as a result of on-board surveys conducted by Harris Country Transit representatives in March 2010. The changes create an addition of approximately 3 new miles of service at no additional change in the current fare structure. Fare Structure: Adults $1.00 each way Children (11 yrs & under) $ .50 each way Seniors (62 & older with I.D.) $ .50 each way Disabled (With I.D.) $ .50 each way Students ( With I.D.) $ .50 each way Lee College Students &Staff (With I.D.) Free Children under 2 yrs Free Certified Paratransit Eligible Passenger $2.00
  15. Ok, so the class of 1989 from Baytown Sterling is trying to get organized on this whole reunion thing. I and a few others are throwing some ideas around about the where and the when. I think I can convince the majority on WHERE for a Friday night gig in May, but the Saturday night gig we would like to be a little fancier. Looking here to see if anyone may know someone with access to a nicer Ballroom or a Hall of some sort in either Houston or Baytown. Thanks in advance. OH! and if there are any lurkers on here from Baytown, we are looking for you over on Facebook, or you can hit me up here in a PM. I am looking forward to finding as many of my fellow graduates as I can. Later !
  16. The Decker Drive-In was where my family went. I'll never forget once my dad saw some teenagers putting sugar cubes in peoples gas tanks while the driver was watching their movie. We got out of there. I'll also never forget the mosquito coils. I was usually preoccupied with the coil and missed the movie. The older kids were allowed to sit on top of the car and sometimes I was allowed to sit on the hood. Good memories.
  17. Hey HAIF, Who has more information about the Water Park in Baytown, TX called Pirates Bay Water Park located at 5300 East Road. Any reviews or experiences? Thanks in advance!
  18. does anyone know the history or any details about this building? it very distinct, and about a block away from the brunson and a couple other architecturally interesting buildings...it is located on w. texas avenue at n. jones st. in baytown: http://www.arch-ive.org/bay001.jpg http://www.arch-ive.org/bay002.jpg
  19. We on the East side had the privledge of having no buses for several years. THen finally one day Metro decided they'd add an Express. We still have no ocal buses but we also do have a Park&Ride. There's slow develoment on the East side but the Park&Ride doesn't go far out. Although the Houston Metropolitan area on the East Side ends at Beltway 8 there's still need for longer routes. Metro takes Park&Ride buses out to every area in the suburbs of Houston.That or near them if they aren't in Harris County.There's one area within the Harris County area with no bus service at all.........Baytown. Baytown has alot of people whom commute to work. The 2 primary routes arew I-10 and SH225.If the were really thinking they'd put a Park&Ride at or adjacent to San Jacinto Mall. Nice place were you can stop,get sometthing to eat, use the restroom all as you go or come from work. That and there's plenty of on site parking weekdays. It could hop on I-10 and shoot Downtown or if the really wanted to stop at the Maxey Park&Ride. Baytown is suddenly growing and it's unbelieveable that they haven't had bus service for this long. That in twe need more bus routes on the Easzt side generally.
