Preserving the Past to Influence the Future
production of this web site is only a small part of
the recent efforts to capture the history of Independence
such as the HISTORIC INDEPENDENCE HEIGHTS NEIGHBORHOOD
COUNCIL under the leadership of Mr. Charles Bolton
are working to establish a new museum on the community
in the Oscar Lindsay House.
Paula Cooper, teacher at Hogg Middle School, has future
plans to write a grant for her students to build a community
garden around the Independence Heights museum.
Bridgette Phillips, teacher at Burrus Elementary was
instrumental in having her students create artwork depicting
life in Independence Heights displayed at the Houston
Museum of Fine Arts.
Vivian Hubbard Seals continues to document and share
the rich history of the neighborhood with the larger
hope that other communities will have similar experiences
in discovering their own LOCAL HISTORY!
