The Conroe Courier reports that the Montgomery City Council approved the addition of five new members to the Fernland History Park Building Committee,:
City officials have finalized the appointees and the responsibilities of a specially formed committee that will oversee development of a planned historical park.
Committee activities will include fundraising, public relations, historical documentation, construction and interface with Sam Houston State University.
Fernland History Park is being developed on 1.75 acres of land donated by LefCo Development. Historical structures leased to the city by SHSU and other structures will be moved to the site designed to create interest in the community’s past significance and serve as an educational facility for area students and historical scholars.
Pad sites for the buildings that will be transported to Montgomery have been rough graded in preparation for foundation work. Subject to favorable weather, committee member Philip LeFevre said he anticipates the four SHSU structures will be moved at the end of March.
