About this item

Named after the hero of the Battle of San Jacinto, Sam Houston, the settlement on Buffalo Bayou was a cattle town until oil was discovered in 1901. Ambitious adventurers from around the globe sought their fortune here and by 1929, forty oil companies had offices in Houston. Today, Houston’s entrepreneurial spirit remains, fueling one of the world’s leading corporate and cultural engines. Houston Then and Now takes archive photos from the city’s rich history and compares them with the same viewpoint today to show the dramatic transformation of the city, including the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
