We weren't the first settlers in Houston, nor is there much physical evidence about those adventurers who first set up camp along the Buffalo Bayou. Now fifth generation Houstonian Dan Michael Worrall – who has been working on a project to bring historical markers to key spots in Harris County – will reveal some of H-Town's secrets during the next Jerry & Marvy Finger Lecture Series. Learn how ox wagons full of cotton rolled east to Harrisburg, early European settlers set up camp at Piney Point, and Reconstruction-era cowboys assembled longhorn cattle near present-day Shepherd Drive.
