Houston was founded in 1836 by the Allen brothers Augustus Chapman and John Kirby. They had purchased the 2,214-acre plot of land for $5,000. On January 1st, 1837 there were only 12 residents and one house. This would drastically change after four months when the population would boom to 1,500. That year it would act as a temporary capital for Texas until it was relocated to Austin two years later. Houston would rapidly develop as a major port city and commercial hub over the next 20 years. By 1890 it would be the center for all railroads in Texas. Large corporations began moving into the city in 1950 thanks to the widespread use of air conditioning. NASA would establish it’s space center in 1961 within the city during the high tensions of the space race and Cold War, respectively. Despite a large number of hurricanes and flooding, Houston has continued to soar in the 21st century.
