There also also is a quaint little white church,... More

We love historic homes, and those currently open and maintained by the Houston Heritage Society at this site are solid examples of several periods in the city's history. Our docent, while perhaps not the most knowledgeable, was enthusiastic and generally competent. Definitely spend some time in the museum. If you can wait until the remaining buildings have re-opened, do so—but... More

We attended a wedding here and it was perfectly charming. The chapel is well-maintained while keeping its historical appeal.

Great place to 'get away from it all' and enjoy the peace and serenity of nature in the middle of downtown Houston. There is almost always something going on for those who enjoy the outdoors!
