GETTING TO KNOW HOUSTON
Houston’s founders wasted no time with timidly placing a post office in rural Texas and hoping it would grow. On August 30, 1836, Augustus Chapman Allen and John Kirby Allen offered the world an ad for the ‘Town of Houston’ in the Telegraph and Texas Register. The brothers offered the townsite (which was nothing more than a slab of Texas wilderness at the time) as a potential epicenter for trade and worldwide commerce. The first steamboat Laura that landed in Houston in January brought the travelers a very disappointing site: one rough log cabin that protected twelve residents from a wild and untamed terrain.
Things changed for the better, however, when Houston was named the new capitol of the Republic of Texas. Within four months, the town swelled to 100 homes and fifteen hundred residents. The wild woods were pushed back to make room for cotton farms, where slaves toiled long hours in the mosquito-bitten humidity.
Early settlers were highly unsanitary and profane in their lifestyles. Brawlers, drunkards, and pigs (actual as well as people) roamed the streets, and lack of hygienic resources led to the outbreak of yellow fever consistently throughout Houston, culminating in quarantine at last, but not before over twelve percent of the population had died.
In 1837, Houston became the county seat for Harris County. The city was incorporated in June. In 1839, Houston received two newspapers. These newspapers furthered Houston’s publicity.
With the next few decades came a spew of transportation options, all flowing from Houston. 1853 brought the construction of the monumental Houston and Texas Central Railroad, whose extravagant span encouraged the growth of several other Texas cities. With railroads, Houston officially shifted from a difficult bogland to a successful place of business. In 1914 the Houston Ship Channel was dug, marking Houston as one of the top three largest deepwater ports in America. By 1928, Houston had an international airport to boast of, which was upgraded to an intercontinental in 1969.
Oil! Houston was known as the world energy capital in the 1970s, with massive exports of petroleum and petroleum-based substances. But why?
Everyone who knows anything about Texas knows about the spectacular oil discovery site known as Spindletop. The geyser of ‘black gold’ exploded January 10, 1901, and at 100,000 barrels a day, the geyser revolutionized oil production. Houston benefitted from the commerce that flowed from Spindletop and by 1929 forty oil companies called Houston home.
In 1930, with a population of 292,000, Houston became the largest city in Texas. Since then, many colleges and nursing facilities have made Houston well-known in the medical and educational field. Today, Houston still remains the largest city in Texas, and the third largest city in all of America. This ginormous metropolis runs on the individual dreams that have upheld it since it was a deserted wasteland. Your business’ dreams contribute to the fabric of Houston. Office Barn is ready to help you reflect those hopes and aspirations in your office space. We’re here to partner with Houston to make the largest city in Texas also the best.
