Happy 185th Birthday Houston! A few months after Texas won its independence from Mexico at the Battle of San Jacinto, brothers John Kirby Allen and Augustus Chapman Allen purchased a little over 6,600 acres on the banks of Buffalo Bayou for a new town. For an investment of less than $10,000, the duo would become the founding fathers of a city that would eventually be the fourth largest city in the nation. 🎈🎊🎁
