Historical Note

The Houston Arts and Media group has the mission statement of collecting and presenting educational and historical information in the form of films, videos and books. In June 2006, Houston Arts and Media began interviewing members of various Houston communities on their memories of the old neighborhoods. The interviewees came from all walks of life and a wide variety of neighborhoods all around Houston and its associated counties. Houston Arts and Media titled this project Neighbor to Neighbor.
