Missouri City Middle School gymnasium renovation project seeks community help

Do you have old yearbooks, pictures or memorabilia from the old Missouri City High/Middle School?

Fort Bend County Pct. 2 Commissioner Grady Prestage is calling on the community to help with the Missouri City Middle School Gymnasium Renovation Project. The building was acquired by the County from Fort Bend ISD and the Commissioner plans to completely restore the building and transform it into a center for the community to use and enjoy. He also plans to include a small museum to house the history of the building and its place in the community.

The Commissioner would like to use photographs of the building from past years as the decorative theme for the renovated building and small museum. County libraries in Missouri City and Richmond will be the drop-off point for any items you would like to lend to the County to be scanned by professional staff. Once the process is completed, staff will contact lenders to pick up their materials. The Library is also offering lenders an opportunity to receive their own digitized copy of the photographs, upon request.

Copies will be kept at the George Memorial Library’s Genealogy and Local History Department for researchers to use far into the future. Those willing to share images and/or information will contribute greatly to future generations; it is vital to the success of saving the history of this building and this community, which belongs to you.

Items can be dropped off at Missouri City Branch Library, 1530 Texas Parkway in Missouri City, during business hours (M 12-9; Tu, W 10-9; Th10-6; F 12-5; Sa 10-5) or to the Genealogy Department at George Memorial Library at 1001 Golfview in Richmond (M-Th 9-9; Sa 9-5; Su 1-5.)

Commissioner Prestage would like to thank you in advance for joining us in this preservation project. For more information or to ask questions, please contact Brenda Patton or Maurice Lewis by phone: 281-403-8000 or email: commpct2@co.fort-bend.tx.us
