A Cultural Casualty of Ambitious Road Construction
Monday, January 31, 2011 - 06:45 PM
The road to the Grand Parkway goes through, and over, the Forbidden Gardens. The Houston area is undertaking a $5 billion road project to circle the city with the Grand Parkway. But that planned road will pass right through a currently quiet cultural center in Katy, TX--about 25 miles west of Houston--called Forbidden Gardens. The museum owners say that would destroy the intended purpose of their organization.
The museum is scheduled to close in the middle of February and is looking to sell its collection of 6,000 miniature terracotta soldiers.
