About this collection

Buffalo Bayou, the waterway destined to become a centerpiece in the Port of Houston’s development, was seen as an essential link between the interior of Texas, the sea, and the rest of the world. And, it was the first home to the Houston Yacht Club. Both organizations—the Port and the Club—grew together on the Bayou, moved in similar geographic directions, and have each gone on to prove their local, regional, national and international importance.

 

This material was digitized in 2010-2011 as part of a grant funded by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
