Cemeteries hold our histories and tell many stories about our lives. Too many of Harris County’s historic cemeteries are in desperate need of preservation. In response, AIA-Houston is launching a collaborative public archaeology and public history project in memory of Howard Pieper, who wished to celebrate Houston’s history and ensure that it not be forgotten. The historic African-American Olivewood Cemetery is the site of our first year of events.
This is YOUR chance to help make Houston a better place! We invite you to join us in us in this vital work so that our Houston pasts will be preserved. We provide the training; you provide the hands that help reveal and preserve history.
