History of the Thomas Street Health Center Building?


Recommended Posts

For reference, it is that large Italianate red-tile-roofed building that looks almost like it's on a hill, on your right as you're heading north on I-45 or west on I-10 coming from downtown. I've attached both a nice picture of the front of the building, and a picture of what the building looks like as seen from I-45. It is currently owed by Harris Health System, which says:

All I've found so far is that it was once a former hospital for Southern Pacific Railroad employees.

 

PS: I tried editing my OP to add that info, but this forum is acting wonky in both Chrome and Edge. Initially when I wrote the OP, Chrome wouldn't let me do anything other than post a poll, and now it won't let me edit. It also initially gave me trouble replying to the thread.
