  1. Do any of your guys have photos or info on what I have always known as the "old Meyer property" at the NE corner of 610 Loop South & S. Post Oak, right across the freeway from the MeyerPark retail property. I know there were some scenes from a movie shot at this location, there appears to be the old footprint of a home, and there is (or was) a small retail building at the SE corner of this property that used to be a gas station ( i think ). Anyone have any citable information about this property or any photos? HCAD.org doesn't describe it at all except for the northern edge next to the bayou as being HCFCD (Harris County Flood Control District) ownership. Kevin Jackson Moderator edit: The Frank K. Meyer residential property was located at 9111 South Post Oak Road in 1967. In present-day 2022, the Harris County Flood Control District water retention pond has an address of 4502 South Loop.
  2. Colonial South Shopping Center at 10421 South Post Oak Road. This is the shopping center with the Cue's Burgers, Juicy Crawfish, Texas Swim Shop, and Post Oak Dental. Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/10421-S-Post-Oak-Rd-Houston-TX/24128783/
  3. Maplewood Square Shopping Center At 9700-9730 Hillcroft Ave. This is the shopping center with the Walmart Neighborhood Market Grocery Store and the former New York Bagels & Coffee Shop. Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/9700-9730-Hillcroft-Ave-Houston-TX/12094932/
  4. I was looking for information regarding the Meyer Estate on the side of the South Loop and discovered that the Rice University Fondren Library that has a few physical boxes of archives regarding the Meyer family. One box contents says: Photos of the Loraine and George B. Meyer house on Holcombe Blvd. Overview The George Meyer Family Photos and Memorabilia contains family photos, photos of the Loraine and George B. Meyer house on Holcombe Blvd. in Houston, a catalog of the company business, and a resolution on the death of Joseph F. Meyer. Dates: 1916 - 1967. Does anyone recall this property? I am looking for photos, or an address. Thanks! http://archives.library.rice.edu/subjects/1114?&filter_fields[]=published_agents&filter_values[]=Rogers%2C+Karen+Hess
  5. I was looking at the Standard Blue Book of Texas Houston Edition dated 1907-1908 and came across a few cool, old, homes. I found the Residences of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph F. Meyer. Very cool! I wonder where this was located?
  6. http://terraserver.microsoft.com/image.asp...ALat=29.6251737 hey there guys, my name is scott and i was looking for info on meyers speedway..... i was looking for south main and this is what i got for you guys, i hope this helps scott harvick2win@yahoo.com
  7. While looking at The Houston Post dated January 4, 1906 I noticed a business listing for Jos F. Meyer Company located at 803 To 812 Franklin Ave. This history is so old that I'm surprised we have access to it. Amazing history here. This is cool! Joseph Meyer started the Meyerland history. Ellwood Hog and Field Fence. Western scrapers and plows. Stalk cutters, plows, harrows, cultivators, and farming implements of every description. Envelope from Jos. F. Meyer Co. dated 1917
  8. I was browsing the newspaper The Texan dated November 14, 1956 and came across a business ad for Meyer Bros. Department Store located at At Bellaire Blvd. At 3rd St. (Presumably 5002 Bellaire Blvd.) I believe this was a stand a lone building? The current site has a Walgreens. The original building must have been demolished. A little confused about the history of the Meyer Bros. They created two businesses? One was a department store (Meyer Bros.) and the other was a grocery store/market called The White House? There are countless advertisements for Meyer Bros. in the 50s and 60s. If I find a cool ad I'll post it. Pretty much all the same though. Any HAIFers have memories here? Do share!! I found a location list of Meyer Bros. locations. See the below quote.
  9. http://www.newquest.com/pdfs/South_Cross_Center.pdf Goodbye outback steakhouse hello new development!!
  10. Yea that is a good article, I guess I should ask about the history of the Spanish Style home that one has been there since before 1944. AS seen in the pic here. Also thx for the responses guys I appreciate it.
  11. Anyone have experience with this mom and pop self storage? I believe the MC Management family developed this. I wonder how this differs from the big self storage companies in town. Website: https://www.meyerparkstorage.com/
  12. I was looking at The Age. magazine dated February 25, 1876 and saw a business ad for Jos F. Meyer Travis St., Houston, Texas Dealer in Iron, Carriage, and Wagon Maker Materials. Jos F. Meyer was the person who responsible for the Meyerland neighborhood.
  13. This shopping center located at 5400 - 6810 Bellaire Blvd. has some history. First opened in February 1956. I've been visiting this center a lot lately. Bernie's Burger Bus is addicting! Figured I'd make a thread to keep track of the comings & goings. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/5400-6810-Bellaire-Blvd-Bellaire-TX/11995514/
  14. I found a newspaper add for Meyer Bros. The White House store. I was browsing an old neighborhood newspaper called Southwestern Times. The issue is dated June 21, 1945. This is possible Store Number 9? HAIF had a listing of all the old Meyer Bros stores and number 9 was missing from the list. Please see below.
  15. I noticed we don't have a thread for the small retail strip center near 610 at Beechnut. Arc Three Studio has an office here. Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/4660-Beechnut-St-Houston-TX/11995478/
  16. iBurn, one of Houston's only dedicated hot sauce stores will be moving into this retail center soon. At the corner of Hillcroft and South Braeswood. Property is owned and managed by MC Management with addresses of 9600-9611 Hillcroft Ave. https://looplink.mcmanagement.com/Listing/9600-9611-Hillcroft-Ave-Houston-TX/12047418/
  17. Does anyone know if there used to be a payphone in Meyerland Park back in the 1980's-1990's, and if yes, where in the park it was located at? I also am curious how long that whale slide has been in the playground area? Any old photos/videos pre-2005 of the park would be very helpful.

  19. Maybe I am posting this in the wrong section, but I live in Meyerland and I have often wondered why we do not have a Super Walmart in the SW Houston/Meyerland area. We have a normal Walmart off of South Post Oak and 610 (which is always REALLY crowded), but not a Super WM. Anyone else think there needs to be one?
  20. On the block across Prairie from Cabo, I noticed today that the doors were open on one of the old buildings with workers coming and going and that there are permits on the windows for plumbing and interior work. Looks like it used to be a Tapas restaurant, Solero maybe?

  22. I have heard about the HISTORIC ARCHITECTURE tour the Avondale Association is planning and I walked down Avondale street where the tour will take place---To my utter surprise there are only 2 "historic" houses on the north side of avondale street in the 100 -- 200 and 300 block of avondale-----essentially from Taft to Bagby--only 2 houses! ( one a private house and the other an attorney's office) on the north side of the street-- what happened to them? I'm curious as to what they looked like--Are there any old pictures of those houses that were torn down?? Several Houses on that street are vacant--will they likely be torn down?
  23. My girlfriend and I ate at Fu's Chinese restaurant on University St in Kirby Village and on the way back to the car we walked past a beautiful Tile Mosaic entry with the wording "Myers White Store" in front of whats now Half Price Books. Does anyone know the history of Myers store ? Any photos ? I absolutely love seeing the tiled entry ways of stores from long past. Cory
  24. It's now an apartment complex and probably some of the parking lot of the movie multiplex. To the neighborhood kids of the 60s and 70s, it was just "the woods." It was where the kids got away from their parents to do their smoking, toking, drinking and all the other "ing" things that they weren't suppose to be doing. I tried hiding my Playboy stash out there once, carefully bagging it in plastic and carefully tucking my treasure under some rocks, but somebody discovered it and took it. I remember coming across a yucky matress and a makeshift shelter of plywood with cigarette butts, empty liquor bottles, etc all around it. Strange thing was, there was evidence galore of people coming and going, but we rarely ran into anyone else. The occasional bb gun dude, but 90% of the time, you felt like you had all the acreage to yourself. Seems like a weird thing to feel nostalgic for.
