GET ON BOARD!...with The Heritage Society's Young Professionals
Double Decker Bus Tour co-chaired by
YP President Katy Caudle & KHOU Ch. 11's Great Day Houston Resident
Historian Randy McKinney. Mr. McKinney has curated a route that follows
the original political four wards from 1840, with notable landmarks and
points of interest along the 3 hour tour. Food and drinks will be on
board, but stops along the route also make time for a drink and walking
tour of some of Houston's most historic bars! Celebrate Houston's
birthday month of August by learning a little more about how the town we
love grew and developed into the 4th largest city in the US. It all
stared with the four wards! Which one would you be living in today? Why
were the Wards formed? What made them each unique? Learn these answers
and more as we explore Houston's past! You
must be 21 or older to attend.
Seating is limited. This is a rain or shine event.
