Categories: Community,Events

houston-180thOn August 30, 1836, brothers John and Augustus Allen founded the City of Houston along the banks of Buffalo Bayou. Thanks to Houstonian’s hard work and ingenuity, we quickly grew into an exporting rail and port hub. Today we are reaching higher; we are home to NASA, the Texas Medical Center, universities known for world-class research, a renowned Theater District, museums, professional sports teams, parades, festivals, and perhaps more importantly, the best Tex-Mex!

Happy 180th Birthday, Houston!
