History Overview of the Brazoria County Historical Museum Building

Post Date:08/29/2019 1:00 PM

From segregated health clinic to public library, the 23rd District Courthouse has served many purposes throughout its 122-year history. Built in September 1897, the building now houses the Brazoria County Historical Museum and is known to be the oldest public building still in existence in Brazoria County.

 

Learn more as Chris Hutson, Architect of Hutson Gallagher, Inc., discusses the evolving history and architecture of the building Thursday, September 19th at 6:30 pm. Hutson has over 30 years of experience working on historic structures in Texas and the Gulf Coast region, including the Texas Governor’s Mansion and the Alamo. Since 2010, Hutson has helped guide the subsequent stabilization and restoration of the 1897 Brazoria County Historical Museum building.  

 

The presentation by Chris Hutson is free and open to the public. The Museum is located at 100 E. Cedar in Angleton. For more information follow the Museum on Facebook or call 979-864-1208.
