The original Brown house fell into disrepair and was demolished in the early 1960s. In 1970, the Heritage Gardeners built the replica of the original house that is now the Frank J. Brown Heritage Museum at 108 Skyview Terrace. That museum now showcases displays of Friendswood's earliest years using photos, graphics, artifacts and visuals. It is open to visitors at posted time and by appointment.
