Interesting history of East End Grain Silos in Houston, Texas explored.

The East End Grain Silos were constructed out of concrete in 1930. A total of 4 grain silos were constructed using concrete foundations. East End Grain Co. owned the property which these 4 grain silos were located on. The grain silos occupied 2 acres worth of land. These 4 grain silos were located on the banks of Buffalo Bayou. The grain silos used to be connected to a freight rail line next to the railroad tracks which separate the East End neighborhood from Downtown.

The first known renovations to the grain silos occurred during the 1930s. In 1940, all 4 grain silos were renovated again. The silos not only operated as grain silos but as gravel silos as well. Cement concrete was mixed and manufactured inside these silos.

In 2011, the storage building for East End Grain Silos were demolished. All of what remained in 2013 was a gravel pit. The only remainders left were the 4 grain silos which can be viewed as a landmark of Houston's industrial past. Recently homeless people have been camping near the grain silos. However citizens seem to not be bothered by this. Nature has growing on and around the grain silos.

The East End Grain Silos are a great place to view Houston's industrial history from the past. However not much is there for the time being. Trees are growing/have grown inside 2 of the 4 silos.

The East End Grain Silos are located at 507 North Nagle Street, Houston, Texas, US 77003.

History behind Beckwith School in Flint, Michigan.

Beckwith School is one of many schools in Flint, Michigan that have been forgotten and faded away with time. The Beckwith School itself served as one of the many early educational institutions of Flint, Michigan along with many others. Not much is known about the Beckwith School itself.


Beckwith School began its life in Flint, Michigan in 1896 as a single story house. This single story house was a one-room school where 1st grade through 6th grade were taught. At that time, Beckwith School was a 1-6 school. (7th grade was added later.) After students completed 6th grade, students were bussed into Flint to attend Flint Community Schools. Westwood Heights School District (Westwood Heights Schools) operated the school from 1896 to 2001.

Beckwith School had its own school district called Beckwith School District which it operated on. The school district was never well off financially. So they relied on Westwood Heights School District and Flint Community Schools for help.

1920 is Beckwith School moved to location on Clio Avenue between Carpenter Road and Pierson Road. 7th grade was added in 1920. School was taught in a two story house this time as opposed to a one story house. After students completed 6th grade and 7th grade, students transferred over to Flint Community Schools to attend Flint Central High School.

During the 1931 is when Westwood Heights School District, Beckwith School District, and Flint Community Schools had an agreement to pay the tuition of the students attending high school at Flint Central High School. Not many school districts could not pay the tuition of their high school students. Especially the rural school districts. That had meant many students didn’t get a chance to go to high school,


In 1947, Beckwith School moved to a different location on Ridgeway Avenue near the intersection of Doran Street & Ridgeway Avenue. This building was a single story red and brown brick building with a black and brown roof. For the most part, the color of the roof was black. 1950 is when Beckwith School became a K-8 school. Beckwith School became Beckwith Elementary School.

Students began attending Beecher High School operated by the Beecher Community School District in Beecher, Michigan in 1952. After 8th grade is when students transferred over to Beecher Schools to attend Beecher High School.

Beckwith School and its school district merged into Westwood Heights School District in 1957. This left Westwood Heights School District to operate Beckwith School as an elementary school for students in grades 1 through 6.

For whatever reason, 1974 is the year when Beckwith School closed. This left the school to be abandoned. Westwood Heights School District began searching for tenants they could lease from. Luck came their way in 1976. Genesee Christian School became the first tenant to lease from Beckwith School. Genesee Christian School leased quarters in the former Beckwith School in 1976. At that time, the 2-year-old school had about 100 students.


In 1987, Genesee Christian School had relocated to a bigger space thus leaving the school vacant again for the second time. Westwood Heights School District made no improvements to the building during that time.

In 1989 during the 1988-1989 fiscal year, Beckwith School burned down in a fire. The cause of the fire left just a part of the building standing and the basement was left open. That fire left the basement exposed. However the exact cause of the fire remains unknown.

1991 is when Beckwith School was demolished. The parking lot was repaved over with cement. The asphalt has since been covered up.

Beckwith School was located at Ridgeway Avenue, Flint, Michigan, US 48504.

Sony dropped R. Kelly.

RCA Records and Sony has now officially dropped R. Kelly from their labels. This R&B star has been accused of decades of sexual misconduct numerous times. It was due to his sexual misconduct and lack of charting sales that Sony dropped R. Kelly. The television documentary series that drew national attention called Surviving R. Kelly was the final nail in the coffin for his reputation.

Allegations have been made against R. Kelly for over 2 decades. He was acquitted for child pornography charges back in 2008 and beat a rape case in 2010. So this is nothing new of sorts.Honestly no one is buying new R. Kelly music in 2019. Most of his recent albums have failed to reach gold status. His newer albums only sell in the hundred thousands.

It’s official. R. Kelly, Jon Connor, and Donald Trump are the peeboys of 2019. R. Kelly is a peeboy.

2 quilts found covering the front of Cook Elementary School in Flint, Michigan.

A strange yet bizarre discovery has been found in Flint, Michigan! Two 30 foot long quilts have been found covering the front of the former Cook Elementary School. These quilts date back to 2015 according to Google Maps street view imagery. The quilts were placed on the rooftop, extending all the way to ground level. A portion of these quilts cover some basement windows.

Flint is the only city I have seen that would cover an entire school building with a quilt. So whoever it was wasted perfectly good clothing material by covering an entire school. That’s illogical. That shit would never fly down here in Texas. Someone must be into knitting.

This is one of the many bizarre things you would never expect to see when browsing on street view using Google Maps. This is absolutely hilarious, wasteful, and staggering. Why would something like this happen? Why cover the school with it? Who would cover almost an entire school with quilts that big? How is this even possible? So many questions that have yet to be answered.

Some say the heating at Cook School hasn’t worked in decades back when it was a functioning school. Others say people who are bored out of their minds do something strange like this.

History of Gershom School in Detroit, Michigan explored.




Not much history is known about the Gershom School in Detroit, Michigan. It is one of Detroit’s many forgotten schools next to Morley School, Cass Union School, Andrew Jackson Intermediate School, and Hunter High School. This news article will explore and explain the history behind Gershom School.


Gershom School was established and built in the Delray neighborhood of Detroit in 1912. The building itself was a 1,088 square foot building constructed out of masonry brick. The school was located on a 8,276 square foot lot. The building had 4 restrooms and a basement. The roof was made out of asphalt. Originally the school was 3 stories in height on an L-shaped building plan.

The student population was largely German Jewish and Czechoslovakian. However overtime, the student population largely became German Jewish. No African American students attended there during that time.

Sometime during the mid-20th century is when the 3rd floor of Gershom School was leveled making the building then become 2 stories. More high school aged students began attending the high school. This led to crowded classrooms. Sometime during the early 1970s is when the 2nd floor of Gershom School was leveled making the building then become 1 story.

Detroit Public Schools sold the building to a private homeowner in 1975. No other known modifications were made during that time.

On the date of 9/5/2005, the property was to a couple of homeowners. These 2 homeowners heavily altered the interiors of this building. (Ref: https://www.redfin.com/MI/Detroit/124-S-Dupont-St-48209/home/98400484)
