  1. This thread was originally created August 29, 2019. I'm reposting / reupping this because this post and other content from me are no longer available on the forum. An archive link will be posted soon. An archive link to this thread before its deletion is here. Mods, please don't move this to the Heights forum where all of my other Washington Corridor and Rice Military, and Garden Oaks/Oak Forest posts were moved to this week. This is NOT in the Heights and it's not part of the Greater Heights area. It's an entirely different area that as suggested and advocated for previously needs its own area forum. There is lots of development happening here, much spurred by the Sawyer Yards and Buffalo Heights developments, which usually merits the creation of a new neighborhood forum. Thanks. 1624 West 34th St in the Central Northwest area of Houston: Street View
  2. I've been meaning to post this for a while ... this has got to be one of the best preserved examples of a period mid-century church in Houston (if not in the US). It's the First Church of Christ, Scientist, at the corner of Main and Jefferson downtown. Pics are below ... Built in '61, it has many hallmarks of the period, and has a mid-century Moroccan theme to it. Mosaic tile is everywhere, and two themes run throughout the church - diamond patterns (even down to gridlines of the poured terrazzo) and mosaic blue color accents. There is original caramel-stained paneling everywhere, special light fixtures, grasscloth on the walls, etc. etc. And the pencil-thin stained glass windows are incredible. The first time I attended church here a few months back, I thought I had died and gone to Mod Heaven Services are at 11:00 Sundays if anyone wants to visit, they are very welcoming of visitors. Please ignore the (1 of 2) in the Topic Title - I thought I was going to spread the pictures into two topics but changed my mind.
  3. I always drive by this Chinese church located off South Main near West Bellfort. Anyone know anything about it? Website: https://en.hcchome.org/
  4. Does anybody here attend the church in reference? It is now United, but when I was baptised there it was pretty basic. I noticed a building in the area of the former playground where we played. I was baptised in 1970. Was in MYF and sang in the chior. I have so many memories connected to this church.
  5. This could be interesting, depending on who buys the property, which fronts Heights Blvd between 17th and 18th. Story from The Leader https://www.theleadernews.com/community/historic-heights-church-selling-property-amidst-merger/article_c12306be-a51d-11ec-bdfb-33c79b6f4e20.html
  6. I don't think we have a thread for the St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church located at 5308 Buffalo Speedway. How long has the church been there? I'm sure they'd been there for 40+ years? Anyone ever attend service here? This is located at Buffalo Speedway & Bissonnet near the HEB.
  7. City of Houston Housing & Community Development has announced preliminary plans to renovate the existing site of Wesley AME Church for mixed use, including affordable apartments, retail, and live-work units for small business incubation. Sales document
  8. 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/
  9. 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/
  10. 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/
  11. White and red building at the corner of Navigation and Milby will be a Church: https://www.holyfamilyhtx.org/3719-navigation-blvd Sign in front says "Coming 2021". Drawings TBD per website.
  12. If you like listening to motivational speeches and attending religious gatherings check https://lhhouston.church/ churches in houston tx too, Pastor Keion Henderson the lead pastor of The Lighthouse Church is such a good speaker. He really helps me get through with my depression, I hope more people find him and listen to his sermons.
  13. 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
  14. 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?
  15. 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
  16. I viewed this process as simply a resident of Montrose. The Churches journey seemed an Arduous and perhaps painful process. After 18 years of observing the amount of commendable community service this church had provided for Montrose………I was somewhat gobsmacked ( technical term used by women of a certain age.) at how it all played out.
  17. My wife and I were going to check out this school for our 19 month old daughter and was wondering if anyone knows about the school. Any info would be helpful. Thanks
  18. Building permit issued for their rebuild. They flooded years ago and just now rebuilding.
  19. I went for a walk last night and stumbled across St. Joseph’s Catholic Church at 1505 Kane St. The priest was locking up, but generously invited me in for a tour. Very interesting history. This is the second oldest Catholic Church in Houston. The current building was completed in 1901 after the original was destroyed in the 1900 hurricane. There is some very beautiful brick work and stained glass. Father Victor explained the church had a major fire in 1995. I was only able to find one article about the fire. He mentioned the bell tower collapsed in the fire and the new metal bell tower next to the church was built as a replacement. Does anyone have any pictures of the church before the fire? https://www.houstonpress.com/news/restoration-man-6570958 I wish I would have taken pictures, but there is also this very interesting cactus sculpture/water fountain on Trinity St. Seems like something for Atlas Obscura.

  21. 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
