Not sure why it's historic. As I understand it, this was a church that was moved here fairly recently, restored and converted into a library.
Armand Bayou Nature Center, the largest urban wilderness preserve in the United States is located just outside Houston, Texas near the NASA Johnson Space Center.
It contains 2500 acres of the natural wetlands forest, prairie and marsh habitats once abundant in the Houston/Galveston area. It is home to over 370 species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Armand Bayou Nature Center offers hiking trails, exhibits, field trips, Scout programs, birding, a historic farm and more. They also conduct educational and stewardship programs.

Nice pics. We see the Space Command Center on movies, an think that it's not true, or it just happens in the movie. But when you go, visit, and see it, it's pretty amazing!
You feel like you are controlling a space mission.
It's worth visiting it.

Thanks for the photo Jim. I graduated HS in Rockdale and remember seeing this when it was dilapidated back in the 80's. Thanks for the links too.
