About Houston TX

Much can be attributed to the varied and rich history of the Houston region. Millions of acres were added this fledgling country as the result of the aftermath of the battle of the Alamo, a former capital, and a base for pirates. This community was once inhabited by cannibals, visited by Spanish missionaries and explorers, a base for pirates, and stayed primarily the former capital of this nation.

Descending from the early races of mankind that crossed into North America by means of the Bering land bridge several thousands of years before Christ, Amerinds, are known to have occupied the southwestern US. A primitive culture evolved next to what is currently known as the upper Texas coast, as these tribal groups spread out across South and North America more that many thousands of years ago. In the 1400’s and 1500’s the first recorded meetings between the native populations and the Europeans were attributed to the Spanish explorers. Since the Native populations These accounts are not particularly pleasant, for the natives of the Gulf Coast area region that eventually became Houston were notorious cannibals tribal groups of the small Kawakawa and Atakapan These were tribal groups that were very ferocious as the Spaniards described as being barbaric and bloodthirsty.

In spite of the relative attraction of Galveston Bay as a safe harbor the Europeans elected to move on, and the upper Gulf Coast of Texas stayed primarily unsettled by the Spanish by the early 1700’s the Spanish came to literally control literally all of the American Southwest. The region currently known as Houston remained a malarial coastal prairie was home to a few remaining Kawakawa, with some scattered bayous and marshes.

Various Caribbean buccaneers, most notably Jean Lafitte, founded short lived communities on Galveston just south of what is currently known as Houston during the aftermath of the War of 1812. To this day, there are many local legends in the southeastern suburbs next to Galveston Bay that speak to the crafty Lafitte placing buried pirate treasure there.

The manufacture of steel, oil production, and shipbuilding in Houston were crucial contributors on the home front in WW II. During this time period, the idiosyncratic giants including Jesse Jones, also known as Mr. Houston, who was a lumberman who became a banker and hosted a weekly high stakes poker game in suite 8F in the Lamar hotel and also financed a skyscraper a year in downtown Houston. Mr. Jones would begin the poker game by announcing that some worthy undertaking, such as the United Way drive was running somewhat behind. Therefore, it cost $5,000 to play and all the betting money was going to the United Way charity. Prior to the first dealing of the cards, each player would write a check for $5,000.

There were also other legendary characters nurtured in Houston. In 1946, there was the man who had been the first undersecretary of state for economic affairs in the country, named Will Clayton. He had also been the president of the largest cotton company in the world. Soon after taking office, he penned a long memorandum that proposed massive aid for warn Europe. In 1947, this memo, which inspired much of the language of a 47 speech by Secretary of State George Marshall, that heralded the sweeping Marshall Plan that rescued Europe.

Also in the hotel room of Jesse Jones was a man named Roy Hofheinz. In the 1950’s, this former Harris County judge and a cantankerous mayor fought continuously with the city council and was almost impeached. However, in 1965, as the head of the Houston Sports Commission, his administration refurnished downtown. He was also responsible for the construction of the first gigantic, domed football and baseball stadium called the Astrodome, which sat 76,000 people.

On this East Texas plain, civic selflessness, amazing generosity, and sophistication, permeated the coarse commercialism of the emerging community. As partner with Will Clayton a doctor named Anderson, who was very altruistic brokered a large cotton deal in Houston, which was a prime example is their talent. In 1939 the bachelor Anderson, who lived alone passed away in a downtown hotel, he left the majority of his considerable fortune to a foundation to be dedicated in part to hospitals for the care of the helpless, incompetent, aged, young, and sickly among the people. His executors of his estate also approved the funding for a new cancer treatment center at the University of Texas, which was named after Anderson in Houston. It wasn’t long before Baylor University would relocate its medical school to this expansive medical center complex from Dallas. Combined with the Baylor College of medicine, the Anderson hospital, and current Memorial Hermann Hospital, which is located on the new outer belt road in the community, these institutions formed the core of the revolutionary Texas Medical Center that currently has over 40 independent institutions on 670 acres in 100 buildings in the largest medical center complex in the world.
