The Timber Cove Recreation Association Records is composed of correspondence, organization meeting minutes, annual reports, membership records, financial records, construction records, and miscellaneous records, documenting the operation of the Timber Cove Civic Club and its successor Timber Cove Recreation Association in supporting the Timber Cove neighborhood of Taylor Lake Village, Texas. Timber Cove is known for the high number of NASA Johnson Space Center personnel and astronauts’ families who resided and continue to reside in the neighborhood, beginning in 1961 with the selection of the new site for the NASA Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, Texas. The bulk of the collection is composed of the organizational records for the Timber Cove Recreation Association, such as their annual reports and correspondence to members. There are the board meeting minutes from 1965 to 2006 (with gaps in dates).
