  3. I discovered this race track just outside of the Houston area. I believe it is now permanently closed. Located at the cross streets of Battle Road and 10625 Crosby Lynchburg Road. Battleground Speedway 10625 Crosby Lynchburg Road Highlands, Texas, 77562 Description: 1/8 mile and 3/8 mile Clay Ovals Track Length: 1/8 and 3/8 mi Surface: Clay Shape: Oval Seating Capacity: 5000 Classes Raced: Sprint Car, Late Model, Limited Modified, Mod-Lite, Classic Drawf, Pure Stock, StreetStock, Eco Stock, and Jr. Mini Our Claim To Fame: Established since 1984. Hosted World of Outlaw Series Looking on Google Earth, it appears the race track went abandoned and then revived nearly a decade later. I wonder the story here? Dirt track to clay track?
  4. Preface: This is my first ever post on HAIF. I have read this forum semi-regularly for a few years, but just decide to create an account yesterday. I am sorry if I made mistakes in this post or put it in the wrong place. Whenever I load up Google Maps, one thing about Houston always catches my eye: The lack of development on the eastern end of the Houston area. The whole area roughly bounded by 99, I10, Beltway 8, and 59, and extending partially into East Houston is almost completely rural farmland or empty lots. It is practically the same distance from the inner loop as Katy, Cinco Ranch, and Cypress, which have all been built out rapidly in the last 15 years. I was just wondering if there was a specific reason for avoiding building in this huge area? Picture of region here: https://imgur.com/a/HuvoFM9
  5. Received this press release today. For the first time since 1923 a new indigent cemetery is opening to serve residents of Harris County as the historic Harris County Cemetery at 5434 Oates Road reaches capacity. The Harris County Community Services Department, which operates the Bereavement Program through its Office of Social Services, has spearheaded the process that led to the new cemetery located in Crosby, Texas. Phase One of the new development consists of 11 acres, which is part of an overall 92 acres of property. Fifty of the 92 acres was purchased by Harris County for approximately $340,000. An additional 42 acres contiguous to the site was previously owned by Harris County Precinct IV and donated to the cemetery at no additional cost. In total, approximately $2.1 million in HUD Community Development Block Grant funding went toward the development of this project. Eight hundred thousand ($800,000) was contributed through the City of Houston, while the balance was provided through Harris County. An estimated 53 per cent of all decedents have been residents of the City of Houston, while the remaining resided in outlying areas of Harris County. Last year, Harris County handled almost 700 decedents of which 80% were cremations. Phase One accommodates approximately 2,500 adult burial sites, 1,500 infant burial sites and 340 cremation vault sites. Each vault holds approximately 200 remains. It is important to note that, while the Oates Road site is expected to receive its final burials in mid-July, it is not closing for those who wish to visit their loved ones. Both cemeteries will remain open to visitors during regular county hours. Texas law requires that counties bear the responsibility of burying every indigent and unclaimed resident with its borders per Section 694.002 of the Texas Health and Safety Code. Wednesday, June 18th a Dedication Ceremony will take place at 10:30 in the morning, officially opening the new cemetery. The first burials at the new cemetery will take place in mid-July.
  6. I don't really know if this is the right place to post this topic but there was nowhere else that seemed to be the right spot.... Anyways, hello all! I was just wondering if anyone knows the status of the Crosby Freeway. Does anyone know an anticipated opening date. Commuting from Crosby to Downtown is not a traffic nightmare or anything like 290, but it is a small hassle to have to take the freeway to the Beltway, and then to I-10 to get into Houston. I know work has been going on near Wallisville and Lake Houston Pkwy since about '06.
  7. Harris County Commissioners today authorized the Harris County Community Services Department to purchase approximately 50 acres of land for the purpose of creating a new indigent cemetery at a cost of approximately $340,000. The land, located at 21122 Crosby Eastgate Road will provide a long-term solution as the historic Harris County Cemetery at 5434 Oates Road reaches capacity. Opened in 1923, The 20 acre Oates Road Cemetery has over 13 thousand burials to date. Approximately 400 spaces remain. "With the cemetery quickly filling up and land values the lowest they've been in decades, we see this as a good time to provide a long-term solution for the indigent burial program. We can do this without putting any additional burden on the County's budget by using federal community development block grant funding," David Turkel, Director of Harris County Community Services said. While Harris County adopted a cremation-first policy in March, traditional burials are continuing for those whose families object to cremation for religious or personal reasons. Unidentified remains recommended for burial by the Harris County Medical Examiner's also continue to require a traditional burial. Development of the property into a cemetery won't begin for several years, said Turkel. Current estimates are that available space at the Oates Road location could last 3-5 years. <iframe width="640" height="480" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?q=21122+Crosby+Eastgate+Road+&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=21122+Crosby+Eastgate+Rd,+Crosby,+Harris,+Texas+77532&t=h&ll=29.985271,-95.021782&spn=0.142738,0.219727&z=12&iwloc=A&output=embed"></iframe><br /><small><a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?q=21122+Crosby+Eastgate+Road+&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=21122+Crosby+Eastgate+Rd,+Crosby,+Harris,+Texas+77532&t=h&ll=29.985271,-95.021782&spn=0.142738,0.219727&z=12&iwloc=A&source=embed" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></small>
