Houston History Association: Building Houston: From Allen's Landing to the Moon - June 2, 2012

Dear Friend of Houston history:

I am writing to invite you to attend our second annual conference on Houston's history, "Building Houston: From Allen's Landing to the Moon." The day-long conference will explore with experts how Houston emerged from the primitive settlement of its founding in 1836 to become the international city it is today.


This year, we are honored that Mayor Annise Parker will open the conference, and Harris County Judge Ed Emmett will offer keynote remarks during lunch. The morning session will feature a panel including Barry Moore, FAIA of Gensler and Stephen Fox of Rice University with time for Q&A from the audience. In the afternoon, choose from several dynamic breakout sessions on various topics. At this writing, confirmed sessions are: Building Houston's Cultural Arts; Building Houston's Transportation Infrastructure; Building on Houston's Natural Wealth; Building Houston's Modern Architecture; and Building Houston - To The Moon. You will also have the opportunity to network and visit exhibitors from numerous local history organizations, preservation groups and neighborhoods.

Early Bird Registration (until midnight on May 25, 2012) is $50.00. Late Registration (until midnight on May 29, 2012) is $65.00. If space allows, on-site registration the day of the conference is $75.00. Registration includes lunch and parking. Please click on the link below to register. We look forward to seeing you for an informative and fun conference.
