Jim Parsons of Preservation Houston will present a talk about the Westmoreland addition, the original site of the Staiti House. The neighborhood is significant for its place in the development of Houston, between 1902 and 1943. At the time, its approach to community planning was innovative in Houston. The Westmoreland Addition was home to Walter J. Fondren, Harris Masterson, Miss Florence M. Sterling and Lyndon Baines Johnson to name a few.
