Preservation Houston offers Architecture Walk tours on the second Sunday of most months. This months tour is downtown Houston, where the origins of this city will be traced.

“Among the stops are the sites of the Texas Capitol, the president’s house and the city market, as well as Houston’s first theater and the Round Tent, one of its most popular saloons. Along the way, you will hear first-hand accounts of pioneer life in Houston and stories about some of the colorful characters who helped keep things interesting (and rowdy) in the young city.”

There isn’t much left of the original site, but see the traces, and learn about Houston when it was the capitol of the Republic of Houston.
