Historic Preservation In Houston


Recommended Posts

Enjoyed this, I had no idea that there were so many Queen Anne style houses.Houston also once had a large collection of Great White City classic revivals, with large porticos, often made of wood and badly decayed by the 1970s. Now the big question is will it lose its collection of midcentury moderns, The recent and pending destruction of Westbury Square is worthy of a historical marker- the earliest and most successful New Urbanist style developments and the first one bulldozed.
