Randy Pace, author, historian and genealogist will make a presentation about the history and occupants of the Fourth Ward Cottage. The story of the cottage coming to The Heritage Society in Sam Houston Park began way back in the 1970s, and Pace considers researching its history and spearheading the coalition which ultimately led to its preservation as his most important, personal achievement. Small buildings, such as the Fourth Ward Cottage, have just as much significance and importance associated with their architecture and occupants as larger, more imposing ones. And while the captains of industry and commerce, who built the grand, impressive edifices of Houston achieved much, their successes were so dependent upon the contribution and sacrifices of thousands of working-class men and women. These unsung heroes built and occupied modest, but important dwellings, such as the Fourth Ward Cottage.
