HHA Nominates Freedmen's Town Properties to be Protected Landmarks

The Houston Housing Authority (HHA) has nominated 22 historic houses it owns in Fourth Ward for protected landmark designation.  The nomination will be reviewed and voted on by the Houston Archaeological and Historical Commission who will make a recommendation to City Council.

Mayor Sylvester Turner lauded the HHA's efforts. "I applaud the Houston Housing Authority's nomination to designate these important structures as protected landmarks. They are reflective of a significant neighborhood's history. Many historic homes have been lost in Freedmen's Town and the HHA's effort to preserve the properties that remain is admirable."
