Texas Historical Foundation Presents Grant to Italian Cultural & Community Center

The Italian Cultural & Community Center of Houston was presented with a grant of $1,000 by the Texas Historical Foundation (THF) the morning of January 10, 2024, on site at the historic Milford House.

This THF grant supports emergency repairs to the Milford House following the collapse of its living room ceiling in July 2023. This award will empower ICCC to continue its mission to advance, celebrate, and preserve Italian culture and heritage through events such as film screenings, wine tastings, lectures, concerts, language classes and more, all hosted at the beloved Milford House.

For almost 70 years, the mission of the Texas Historical Foundation has been to preserve Texas history. That includes conserving artifacts, restoring buildings, archiving documents, gathering and sharing stories, and safeguarding Lone Star culture. The ICCC Staff and Board are honored that the Milford House, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2023, has been recognized by the foundation as an important piece of Texas history.
