Houston--a modern city.

The city of Houston, Texas was founded in 1836, near the banks of the Buffalo Bayou. Named after Sam Houston, the city was incorporated in 1837, and has grown to be the largest city in Texas - and the fourth largest in the United States. The city saw many bursts in population growth due to the early port and railroad system, as well as the discovery of oil in 1901. It is home to NASA's Mission Control Center, and the Texas Medical Center - the largest collection of research and healthcare institutions in the world. This beautiful map provides a look at the early days of the city.
