Azalea Trail – Forum of Civics

The Forum of Civics began life as a country schoolhouse in 1910 far from the city limits of Houston. In 1925, it was purchased by William C. Hogg, son of the first native born governor of Texas, who enlisted famed architect John F. Staub to transform the building into a New England-style meeting house. Purchased by River Oaks Garden Club in 1942, it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Welcome to our home!
