The River Oaks Courts and the History of Medina

River Oaks Courts is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark.  When the property was first developed in the 1930's Medina was a busy and growing community.  Please enjoy the feature below showcasing oral histories of this era in Medina and the development of the property by Brown Stokes and his family.

The website also has more detailed history about the original development of the property and its history after it was sold by the Stokes family.

This film was produced by Clinton Haby and Storykeeping.com.  Thank you for the hard work put into the production and thanks very much to Ople Boyle, Gary Stokes, Sandy Vannatter, Anita Reed, Cecil LeStourgeon and L.D. Moore for so generously sharing their stories and memories.  This feature is a distillation of many hours of recorded interviews which are available to view at the Medina Library and may also be made available online.
