History
The Allen brothers founded the city in 1836 and named it after Sam Houston, hero of the Battle of San Jacinto. Since then, it has grown from a tiny village to an oil boomtown and international center of business. In 1969, “Houston” was the first word spoken from the moon. More heart surgeries are performed in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center than anywhere else in the world. Learn more interesting facts and figures about Houston.
