This is a significant and moving part of Houston's history. A tour of Yates home was enlightening because of the wonderful docents. A walk around the block revealed brick streets that I didn't know existed, built by the residents, many of whom were bricklayer. Treat yourself.
Our history! All should stop by this gem and historical place! Home turned museum of this giant of a contributor to the successful establishment of African Americans to Houston's Freedman's Town! Truly up there with all the museum's in Houston! The tour guides are a wealth of information!
Gives a glimpse of such an incredibly important chapter of Houston history and contributes so much to the community
I love hearing and learning about the history of my people!!! The Freedman's Town models were created by the Architectural students at the greatest HBCU ever...Thee Prairie View A&M University where we PRODUCE PRODUCTIVE PEOPLE!!! We have so much rich African-American history in Houston.
I enjoyed visiting this quiet house in fourth ward. It's one of several historical homes and churches all which are in walking distance from one another. The white picket fences really make it stand out. I only wish the museum section or house interior was open at the time. From what I hear, the inside is like going back in time. Make your way down to Bethel church, then walk here and you experience the true history of the Yates family and other freed blacks as they lived here after slavery was abolished. Perfect location to learn history of the area.
