AFP Houston Holiday Meet-Up

 

 

 

Please join the AFP Houston Chapter for our annual Holiday Mixer, this time with a virtual twist. During this event, Jim Parsons, Programs Director of Preservation Houston, will present Houston: A Historical Narrative, the story of Houston's founding and growth. We will also recognize past and future board members. 

 

 

Houston: A Historical Narrative
The story of Houston’s founding and growth is one of the most remarkable urban histories in America. Established as a frontier capital in 1836, the city relied on a mix of ambition, dedication and (at times) sheer luck to transform itself into a regional trade center and, later, an international port and energy hub. Join Preservation Houston Programs Director Jim Parsons for an illustrated look into Bayou City history, exploring the forces that have shaped its development and the stories of some of the people who helped turn a swampy frontier village into one of America's largest and most dynamic cities.
