Film Screening: Post Oak Boulevard – A Texas Legacy

October 12 - October 19

It was back in the summer of 2019 when we watched the award-winning documentary, Post Oak Boulevard – A Texas Legacy, in Naman Hall at HCRJ. Ready for an encore screening?! This month, we’re making the film available to watch virtually anytime from October 12-19.

This film captures the history of Houston’s west side, from its earliest settlers to its transformation into one of the most dynamic business, shopping and residential districts in Texas, and one of the great boulevards of the world. The story begins in the early 1800s when Texas was a part of Mexico, and Stephen F. Austin’s 300 Colonists traveled the old San Felipe Road through what is now Uptown Houston. Eventually, Italian immigrant families purchased rural land parcels and grew vegetables on their truck farms along Westheimer Road.

Post Oak Boulevard – A Texas Legacy details the historic San Felipe Trail, and interviews include rare first-hand accounts of eyewitnesses and multi-generational family members, as well as many of the visionaries who transformed this once rural flatland into a world-class, multi-faceted residential, retail and shopping district.

Would you like to receive the link for the full-length film? Please contact Justin at 713-782-4162 or Justin@hcrj.org.
