A Heights music venue and a River Oaks mansion are among the latest additions to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Heights Theater, located at 339 W. 19th Street, was built in 1923. Dallas-based developer Edward Cabaniss bought the property in 2015 and it re-opened it late 2016 after a year-long renovation process, adding a new stage and flooring as well as upgraded lighting.

The building still features some of its original Spanish tiling, circular windows added in a 1935 renovation, and charred wood from a fire in 1969.

The Charles W. and Mary Duncan House on Inverness Drive was also added to the registry. According to the Houston Association of Realtors, the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home was built in 1947. It clocks in at 5,706 square feet and is currently appraised at $3.31 million.
