Preserving the Past to Influence the Future

The production of this web site is only a small part of the recent efforts to capture the history of Independence Heights.

  • Organizations 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.

  • Ms. 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.
  • Ms. 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.

  • Mrs. Vivian Hubbard Seals continues to document and share the rich history of the neighborhood with the larger Houston community.

We hope that other communities will have similar experiences
in discovering their own LOCAL HISTORY!
