You have reached the website for Historic Houston: How to See It, a book about heritage tourism in the area surrounding Houston, Texas. In each chapter, we tell the story of what happened during a segment of Texas' first 100 years, then provide itineraries for experiencing it. We emphasize sites that are intact, and we offer detailed maps with turn by turn directions for discovering it all.
For a preview of our trips in pictures, please click on www.picasaweb.google.com/lucinda.freeman. There we show a large group of pictures from our destinations, organized by chapter.
Bon voyage, y'all!
