Houston TX Community History
Historical artifacts found near Houston Creek point to human presence in the area as early as 7500 BC. The area was originally populated by Native American tribes until the settlement of German immigrants in the 19th century. German influence from that period is still present in well-recognized street and school names around Houston like Huffmeister and Matzke. The first school in Houston was built in 1884 as a one-room structure. From that humble beginning, it evolved into Houston-Fairbanks Independent School District - the second largest in the metro area after Houston ISD. The development in Houston Texas hit a rapid pace with the discovery of oil along the Gulf Coast in 1904. Houston Texas was mostly rural and it's residents focused on rice and dairy farming until it's suburbanization in the 1950s.

Where is Houston Texas Located?
Houston is located 165 miles (266 km) east of Austin, 112 miles (180 km) west of the Louisiana border, and 250 miles (400 km) south of Dallas. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 656.3 square miles (1,700 km2); this comprises 634.0 square miles (1,642 km2) of land and 22.3 square miles (58 km2) covered by water. The Piney Woods are north of Houston. Most of Houston is located on the gulf coastal plain, and its vegetation is classified as temperate grassland and forest. Much of the city was built on forested land, marshes, swamp, or prairie which resembles the Deep South, and are all still visible in surrounding areas. The flatness of the local terrain, when combined with urban sprawl, has made flooding a recurring problem for the city. Downtown stands about 50 feet (15 m) above sea level, and the highest point in far northwest Houston is about 125 feet (38 m) in elevation. The city once relied on groundwater for its needs, but land subsidence forced the city to turn to ground-level water sources such as Lake Houston, Lake Conroe, and Lake Livingston. The city owns surface water rights for 1.20 billion gallons of water a day in addition to 150 million gallons a day of groundwater.
