HOUSTON, TX – It’s that time of year again.  We’re not talking about back to school, either. It’s the Bayou City’s birthday!  Houston is 178 years old to be exact.

On August 30th 1836, John Kirby Allen and his brother, Augustus, founded Houston. Since then, our city’s grown to be the nation’s fourth largest, and the energy capital of the world.

That alone deserves a holiday or at least a party, right?

Make sure you take a second to wish this wonderful city of ours, a very, happy birthday.
