Houston also known as h-town came into existence in 1836 when two men from New York purchased over 6,000 acres along Buffalo Bayou to begin a city. Named after General Sam Houston, the city of Houston became official in 1837, and the rest is history. H-town became a commercial hub, and by the early 1900s, after years of digging channels, it also became a port town. Only one thing hindered its growth – excessive heat and humidity. So with the advent of air conditioning in the 1950s, companies finally began to relocate and Houston expanded exponentially.
