Zoom 1916 George Kessler Plan for Hermann Park 

1916 George Kessler Plan for Hermann Park 

Hermann Park Conservancy has partnered with the Julia Ideson Library downtown and the Houston Public Library to present an exhibition honoring Hermann Park's centennial in 2014. The historic library re-opened in 2011 after a $32 million renovation and is the perfect place to display objects from the Park's history including original planning documents, maps, renderings, and photos.

Objects in the exhibition have been sourced from the archives of Hermann Park Conservancy, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, and the City of Houston Archives in the Texas Room of the Julia Ideson Library. The exhibition will be displayed upstairs in the Tudor Gallery.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with Hermann Park Conservancy, Houston Public Library, the City of Houston, and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department. Special thanks to Friends of the Texas Room at the Houston Public Library, Danielle Burns, and Houston History Magazine

The exhibition is free and open to the public.
