On September 13, 2012, at the Lubbock City Council Meeting, Councilman Victor Hernandez proposed that the Landwer-Manicapelli house, located near the Buddy Holly Recreation area on North University, be renovated and turned into a Lubbock Hispanic Cultural Center.  LHS feels that this house, which was designed a local historic landmark in February, 1982, is an important structure to preserve and members of our organization attended the meeting to show our support for Councilman Hernandez's efforts. The building had been operated as a community center and party house by the City of Lubbock until 2008 when structural concerns caused it to be shut down.
