A historic house in Navasota might soon be getting a makeover with the help of a few local artists.
Navasota Marketing and Communications Director Corey Johnson continues to work on a project that would incorporate an art gallery and museum at the Horlock House, as well as allow up to three local artists to be housed there for free.
Artists would be housed six months at a time.
In turn, approved artists would be required to give tours of the historic home, as well as maintain its upkeep.
