I came across this blog recently, featuring the history of Houston — Bayou City History:
You see, I’m a native Houstonian with an interest in local history. I’ve always been fascinated at whatever purpose some old, decrepit building served years ago. It’s amazing to look at one area of the city and realize that a century ago, it may have been a bustling residential area, an industrial center, or even an old Army fort. I always thought that there were still some forgotten pieces of Houston’s history just waiting to be uncovered.
I’ve already started digging. This blog will show what I’ve found.
