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.
