Historic Houston: How to See It
As a new board member, I'm looking forward to working at the Houston History Association annual meeting Saturday, May 4th at the historic Julia Ideson building in downtown Houston! Lots of interesting speakers are on tap! www.houstonhistoryassociation.org.
Check out the Houston Chronicle's "Bayou City History" blog by J.R. Gonzales, where he interviewed me about why I wrote the book. J.R. has a great repository of information on Houston's history.
Many thanks to the Burleson County Czech Heritage Society in Caldwell for their warm hospitality on Sunday, August 19th. What a great, fun-loving group!
You have reached the website for Historic Houston: How to See It, a book about heritage tourism book 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.
