The Bellaire Historical Society Feb. 9 meeting will feature Gary Nichols, Historian for the Greater Houston YMCA.
Designed in an Italian Renaissance style and in the face of a devastating world war, the Downtown YMCA was the only Y constructed in the nation in the previous ten years of the depression. It became a Houston landmark, replaced after 71 years.
The Bellaire Historical Society meets on the second Thursday of each month (September-May) at the Bellaire City Hall, 7008 South Rice. Refreshments and BHS updates start at 6:30 p.m. and the program starts at 7 p.m.
