We have seen a lot of negative comments on various social media pages about the demolition of dangerously worn down and dilapidated buildings in Downtown Port Arthur. So, allow us to now put the focus on some POSITIVE changes to our Downtown area! Legacy Community Development Corporation is an organization that is working hard to revitalize Downtown. They have already built a number of new homes, including several on 6th Street between Savannah and Austin Ave. **NOTE** They will have a couple of representatives at our Family Fun Day this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to answer your questions about their new homes and other revitalization plans that also include events and activities to bring people to Downtown Port Arthur. A block from these houses is a BEAUTIFUL brand new city park built in partnership between the City of Port Arthur and a program through Keurig Dr. Pepper. Be patient, folks! Good changes are coming!

Thanks for your continued partnership. PA strong - together we can!

This is good news. It’s sad for the old buildings to come down, but it’s probably too expensive to restore them. It’s better to tear them down and rebuild rather than just let them deteriorate. Thanks to Museum of the Gulf Coast, Legacy Community Development Association, and Port Arthur Texas Visitors Bureau for working to restore our beautiful Port Arthur.

I've seen the New neighborhood personally and must admit it looks beautiful. Keep up the great work

Sounds like a solid plan to me!

Don’t complain about redevelopment unless you want to step forward and fund revitalization

Looking forward to the progress!!! #portarthurproud

You can spruce up buildings but the elephant is still in the room...SHOOTINGS AND BURGLARY...it takes more than paint and plywood to fix that.

Awesome news! I hope that the city streets are next on the agenda. I hit a pothole while visiting my mom that caused over 500 dollars in repair to my car. Not amused.

Gods blessings to many families. Great job

UPDATE!! Edith's Place has informed us they will be open from 7a to 2p this Saturday!We are excited to announce that our friends across the street from us at Edith's Place have agreed to be open for breakfast and lunch from 7am to 2pm on Saturday, December 15 during our Christmas at the Museum Family Fun Day! They aren't typically open on Saturdays, so when our Fun Day attendees have asked about good places for lunch on Saturdays (which many of them do ask!), we've had to direct them elsewhere. However, Edith's will be selling chicken and sausage gumbo this Saturday! Our entire staff LOVES to eat at Edith's! We always leave with full bellies and some leftovers in a to-go box! Go check them out at 743 Procter Street... across from us and next door to famed Spindletop photographer Frank Trost's historic office building/photography studio. ... See MoreSee Less
