Sam Houston Historic Park Renovations

The City of Houston General Services Department, on behalf of the Houston Parks and recreation Department, contracted with ERC to perform repairs of the historic buildings in Sam Houston Park. A total of eight (8) buildings were identified and a scope of work was prepared based on their unique needs. Although all eight buildings are of the same construction type, wood frame with wood siding, each has its own special set of requirements that needed to be addressed on an individual basis.

Building 6 – Old Place
Building 8 – Nichols Rice Cherry House
Building 10 – St. John Church
Building 12 – 4th Ward Cottage
Building 13 – Yates House
Building 14 – Staiti House
Building 15 – San Felipe Cottage
Building 16 – Pillot House

ERC proudly performed all tasks required and have come to project completion. We look forward to the park reopening and having the public continue to enjoy these historical buildings.
