Talkin’ Steamboats, Thursday in Houston

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on July 8, 2018

This coming Thursday, July 12, I’ll be speaking on the history of steamboating on Buffalo Bayou, and the competition between Galveston and Houston for commercial dominance in 19th century Texas. My hosts will be the Harris County Chapter of the Texas German Society, that will meet at 6:45 p.m. Thursday at the Trini Mendenhall Sosa Community, 1414 Wirt Road.

Hope to see y’all there!

    I hadn’t heard about talking steamboats. This sounds very intriguing, almost Twilight Zoneish! 😉
