Julia Ideson Library

About the Venue

Against a backdrop of modern skyscrapers and sharp architecture, the historic Julia Ideson Building is a reminder of times past. The building opened in the early 1900’s and served as the city’s main library for decades. It continues to serve as a part of the Public Library System, housing an archive of Houston and Texas history. Rich history is etched into the design, with the lavish Spanish Renaissance style visibly present in the construction of the whole building.
