  2. The San Jacinto Monument IMO is a really wonderful piece of architecture in Houston. It symbolizes Texas History almost as fine as the Alamo. The only problem is its stuck way out in petrochemical/refinery heaven and is not at all a part of the Houston Skyline or anything of the like... I think it would be quite interesting to have it relocated somewhere up Buffalo Bayou- possibly in the East End where they are going to redo Buffalo Bayou making parks out of it, etc. Just off the Downtown Houston Skyline, but really a part of it...real close to town. I think it'd also be interesting to move the Battleship up there as well... I know its a crazy idea and of course it would not be the to close to where the battle of San Jacinto was... I just think its wasted now because of where it is. I think it could really add a great deal to Houston if it was right in town so it'd get much more exposure not just from locals, but tourists as well... Thoughts?
  3. And the '60's are very hot at the moment! Producers? I am available as a consultant! Huckster House, 811 Bayridge Rd. Still there, I believe
  4. This isn't some existing project we already know about, is it? bidclerk's description of an awarded contract: https://www.bidclerk...ct.1100641.html
  5. Pasadena/LaPorte Bus Route Ridership Climbs The City of Pasadena, Second Century Development Corporation, the City of LaPorte and San Jacinto College have agreed to continue their partnership with Harris County Transit on a fixed bus route service due to steadily increasing ridership. The route, linking Pasadena to LaPorte began with 661 riders in January of 2010 its first month of service. By August, the figure had climbed to 1,715. Currently, monthly figures show an average of 2,500 passenger boardings per month. One third of those riding are San Jacinto College students, while the remainder use the service for going to work, medical appointments, shopping and to connect to the larger surrounding community. "It's great to see local residents riding and in turn, local leadership partnering to keep the service going," said Ken Fickes, Director of Transit Services, Harris County Community Services Department.
  6. NEED HELP!!!!! Need help on finding a article on a old cold case. There is a tombstone in the La Porte Cemetery which states "A LITTLE DARLING FOUND MURDERED AT THE END OF LOVERS LANE April 21,1950". Lovers Lane was on Powell Road or Goatmans Road in La Porte. Would there be a article on it in the Post or Chronicle? Could anyone look this up for me or tell me how to find it? Thanks.
  7. In the 1920s, Bay Shore Park in La Porte advertised itself as Houston's Finest Playground. There was a pier extending into the bay, a dance pavilion, bandstand and an inn on the premises, plus other amenities. The park had it's own orchestra and singers. The ads for Bay Shore Park sometimes appeared adjacent to ads for Sylvan Beach Park in the newspapers but there was no suggestion the two were connected in any way. Anybody know anything of this or have any pictures? Where was it and what became of it? Are there any remnants?
  8. I wondered the other day why no one ever discusses old Sylvan Beach??? It's like it just faded from all memory. We always went because of the old Dance Pavilion for weddings and parties over the years. (More interior photos to scan) The pavilion was always known for its spacious dance area and for the big bay windows that let you see out into the water. (very romantic) Maybe we can find some links to show the old and new Sylvan Beach. There are some real killer historical pics out there. It was once a major attraction waaaaay before our time of course.

  10. http://www.globest.com/news/1120_1120/houston/169271-1.html This is in addition to the plans to replace the old Sylvan Beach Pavilions with a new 200-room hotel overlooking Galveston Bay. La Porte is really coming along, and its old town is still pretty active.
  11. Who remembers The White House replica designed by Alfred Finn for Governor Ross Sterling? The traditional Colonial-style mansion, designed by architect Alfred Finn, was built in 1924 for former Texas Governor Ross Sterling, the 31st governor of the Lone Star State. The mansion — also known as the First Texas White House — is located on six acres at 515 Bayridge Road in La Porte.
