St. John the Divine is going out on the town and you are invited! This month, join members of your church family for an outing to the unique underground space of the Buffalo Bayou Cistern followed by lunch. Space is limited to 20 people. Tickets are $10.00 per person, not including lunch.
This hidden gem is literally hidden; underground! The Cistern was one of the City of Houston’s first underground drinking water reservoirs. Built in 1926, it provided decades of service until it was decommissioned in 2007 due to an irreparable leak. Recognizing the significance of the highly unusual space and with generous support from The Brown Foundation, Buffalo Bayou Partnership repurposed the Cistern into a magnificent public space. We will be taking a 30-minute guided tour at 10 am highlighting the history and architecture of this unique industrial site. After the tour, we will enjoy lunch together at an area eatery.
