THE SOUTHAMPTON PILLAR PRESERVATION PROJECT
Posted on Jun 20th, 2022
The Southampton Pillar Preservation Project
In the Fall of 2021, the Southampton Civic Club Board embarked on an exciting project to preserve the concrete pillars that identify the streets in our neighborhood and replace pillars at intersections where they no longer exist. The project includes the revitalization (straightening, repairing, cleaning) of the 23 pillars that were/are still standing, and adding 27 new pillars on intersections where none exist. This includes Rice Boulevard and Bissonnet where none ever existed. An additional four pillars are being installed at the intersections of the boundaries of the neighborhood with “Southampton” engraved on them. By early Spring 2022, all repairs/revitalization of the existing 23 pillars had been completed. The fundraising goal of $40,000 was met in May 2022, and new pillars began being cast and installed in June 2022. A huge thank you to Southampton residents and friends who donated to the Pillar Preservation Project and helped restore a bit of Houston history.
