HMRC Event: How to Research a Historic Property

November 11, 2017   11am-1pm

The Houston Metropolitan Research Center’s Architectural Archivist will present on the basics of how to research a historic property.  This will include how to date buildings, find original residents, and which local organizations can help.

Highlighting HMRC’s value to building research, this event will also include an Architectural Orientation to the Texas Room to introduce the public to our collections and how to access them through the reference desk.

This program goes beyond our monthly Texas Room Orientation to focus primarily on HMRC’s architectural collections.  Customers will learn about architectural drawings, archival collections, books, and other materials that are useful in historic building research.

Parking is available under the Central Library building, with entry on Lamar Street.  For questions, please contact Samantha Bruer at samantha.bruer@houstontx.gov or 832-393-1376.
