Buffalo Bayou Partnership invites you to take A LOOK BACK to the late 1800’s, when Houston was founded, to learn about those important individuals and families along Buffalo Bayou who helped shape Houston. Listen, learn and enjoy the breeze aboard Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s pontoon boat, Spirit of the Bayou. The tour is May 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Meet at Sabine Promenade.
Louis Aulbach, local historian and author of Buffalo Bayou: An Echo of Houston’s Wilderness Beginnings will be your guide. He will share stories of the Allen brothers, the founders of Houston, and provide historical information about places, people, animals and events along the bayou west and east of downtown including which families were first to settle in Houston, the first breweries of Buffalo Bayou, and early wildlife sightings.
