Welcome to Historic Houston: How to See It!

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!

Lectures and slide shows

Past topics have included: Republic of Texas; King Cotton and the Civil War; Czechs, Germans and Galveston; Early Houston: the Wards and the Heights.
