EDIT: @ekdrm2d1 Originally broke this story back on June 24th on the "Holy Places" subforum. This will be a thread discussing the actual construction taking place regarding the master plan. The other topic in "Holy Places" will be dedicated to St Anne in general. **Original Post** Seems the big churchs all around Houston are getting upgrades. First I posted about St. Martins and now St. Anne. Developer: St. Anne Catholic Community Architect: (Unknown) Phase I Completion: Spring 2020 While investgating HBJ I found this: Did some more digging and I found this from Vaughn Construction: http://www.vaughnconstruction.com/news/2018/03/02/st.-anne-catholic-community-selects-vaughn-for-campus-addition Image from Vaughn: I remember walking along Shepherd a couple weeks ago and seeing that they were building a drive. Didn't know it was part of a much bigger deal. From St. Anne's website (construction photos) from 7/19/2019: https://www.saintanne.org/news-events
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.
