We Got our Mod Historic District Finally!

Postby txmod » Fri Jul 01, 2011 9:18 pm

After a couple of years of work, and a lot of controversy, (you have no idea), Glenbrook Valley was established as a protected historic district in Houston. At 1,256 homes it is one of the larger mid-century historic districts, developed between 1953 and 1962. As far as I know it is the first post WWII Historic District in the state of Texas.

This is a great step in recognizing the importance of mid-century architecture. A great big thank you also goes to Atomic Ranch magazine for their support and materials they forwarded to the Houston city council and the Mayor.

that's awesome! congratulations!

you should repost this in the preservation forum too.

also, while I know each situation is unique in its own way, you might consider writing a summary detailing your process and the obstacles overcame. this will be helpful for other communities considering similar endeavors.

Congratulations! I know that had to be a tremendous undertaking in Houston, the land of no zoning. You are all to be heartily commended.

I am REALLY hoping our experience is a unique one in the process, trust me on that.

I am glad it is over, and I am really glad we got this.
