  1. I remember going here for work meetings. Our business was so small, at that time, so the church agreed to let us rent out space for a general staff meeting. Website: https://www.westburyumc.org/
  2. I was searching HAIF for information about the property and couldn't find a thread. I wonder the total acreage? Website: https://www.wmbc.org/
  3. 5.51-Acres at Linkwood near Buffalo Speedway. Minutes away from the medical center. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/3511-Linkwood-Dr-Houston-TX/24016643/
  4. I only just recently saw this beautiful cathedral on Woodway near Sage the other day. It is absolutely beautiful! I didn't think they built stuff like this anymore. Just wanted to share if you haven't seen it. I don't know how to post photos so here's a link to the website with a few interior photos. http://www.stmartinsepiscopal.org/photos/archive-c.jpg http://www.stmartinsepiscopal.org/2004-fol.htm
  5. https://www.saintphilip.net/ Anyone know when the church will sell their property? That stretch of San Felipe near Post Oak is so valuable! The church campus does not fit the area. Maybe they will sell in 10 years?
  6. Does anyone remember the first location of Braeswood Assembly of God Church? It was on Braeswood, of course. It was small. Then they built what was then a large building and moved into it on Fondren Avenue. I am searching to find the exact date when the new building was opened. Can anyone give me a clue? I believe it was 1973 or 4. Thanks
  7. Building permit issued for their rebuild. They flooded years ago and just now rebuilding.

  9. Trinity Episcopal Church Main @Holman Established in 1893, Trinity Episcopal Church acquired this site in 1910. Construction of the sanctuary, designed by architect Ralph Adams Cram, began in 1917 and was completed in 1919. Features of the Gothic revival structure include a basilica plan with an offset buttressed and pinnacled tower, and art glass windows. Five rectors of the parish became bishops in the Episcopal church. Trinity Church continues to serve a large active congregation. This building is in the National Register of Historic Places
  10. Staff edit: According to an article in the Texas Monthly Magazine dated December 1982, the address for The Summit is 10 Greenway Plaza. The address is aligned with the naming numerical system to correspond with the rest of the Greenway Plaza campus. (1 Greenway Plaza to 20 Greenway Plaza.) Decades later, the address has changed to 3700 Southwest Freeway. My first visit to The Summit was for a live concert... it was either '77 or '78 (making me around 10 at the time). My older sister took me to see The Village People. There were no chairs on the floor, and I remember smelling so much pot, and seeing clouds of smoke, lots of drugs, drinking, and very friendly people. One of my sister's friends picked me up and put me on his shoulders so I could scream my little girl lungs out! It was probably the best memory I'll ever have of The Summit, especially before all the changes (chairs, security, political correctness) took place. No, my mother had no idea. I loved The Village People, and was in love with the construction worker only to find out later he'd never be in love with me. So I moved onto Leif Garrett. Thank goodness I grew out of that one... Please share yours.

  12. First Presbyterian Church of Houston Main @ Binz Organized March 31 (Easter Sunday), 1839, in Senate Chamber, Capitol of Republic of Texas, Main at Texas, by the Rev. Wm. Youel Allen, missionary from the United States, and eleven members. James Burke was elected ruling elder. Services of worship and a Sunday School (begun on May 13, 1838) continued in Capitol while church building was being erected on site (NW corner, Main and Capitol) given by the Allen family which had founded Houston. This church was the first house of worship completed in Houston. Dedicated on Feb. 13, 1842, it was used for meeting of other denominations and groups. Here the House of Representatives met in summer of 1842, and President Sam Houston addressed a joint session of Congress. Thus the congregation repaid the Republic's hospitality of 1838-1839. Original church burned 1862; a brick structure was built in 1867, and served until the erection of a large stone edifice, Main at McKinney, 1894. Fire destroyed part of that building in 1932. The present church was occupied in 1948 and dedicated Sept. 12, 1954. Through the years, this church body has furnished many outstanding leaders to the businesses and professions of state and nation.
  13. Marty, Beth Yeshurun's original sanctuary that fronts Braeswood is MCM, and it's by Len Gabert, according to Stephen Fox.
  14. Updated and retracted. Ok, I definitely jumped the gun on this post. I have spoken with Howard Reed, Pastor of Central Presbyterian Church. He is informed me that my post concerning the sale of their property was erroneous. I apologize to the Church for failing to confirm my info prior to posting. I am sure there will be more details in the future. -Jeromy

  16. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: On November 9, 1879, a group of 24 men met in the home of F. Schnaucke and founded a congregation they named Deutsche Evangelisch – Lutherische Dreieinigkeitskirche Gemeinde of Houston (German Evangelical – Lutheran Trinity Church of Houston). At the same time, the forefathers saw a need to nurture the spiritual, educational and social needs of their children, so a school was founded at the same time.

  17. Notice that dirt is being moved - any info on if any development is happening there?
  18. St Pauls United Methodist on the corner of Main & Bissonet/Binz (accross from the MFAH) is one of my favorites. I probably have shot more photos there than any place else in Houston. They also have English Change Ringing Bells in the tower, I believe the biggest set west of the Missisippi.
  19. Don't leave out St. Michaels on Sage Rd. You have to drive into the parking lot and view it from the east elevation.
  20. Does anyone know the building timeline for Trinity Baptist Church. They have land at the corner of Fry and Spring Green. Their sign stating "future home" has been out awhile and it seems like nothing has gotten underway yet? I was just curious when they are to break ground?
  21. I love synagogue architecture. The redesign of Congregation Beth Yeshurun on Beechnut is amazing. It's immense on a Houston scale. Unitarian Fellowship of Houston on Wirt Road is much smaller, more intimate. They have a lovely sanctuary that gets a lot of natural sunlight and looks out onto lush greenery and a labyrinth out back. It's so soothing and beautiful.
  22. Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church At 11612 Memorial Dr.
