924 Congress
Houston, Tx  77002
 OKRA occupies a building from the 1880's.  It is located just off of the historic intersection in the hub of the Main Street/Market Square Historic District, directly across the street from the Hotel Icon. One of the oldest buildings in Houston, 924 Congress (originally 72 Congress St.) opened in 1882 as the Casino Saloon and served as a bar until Prohibition, when it became a barbershop. Since that time, the building housed several other businesses including the "Circle Bar", named for its original circle arch and barrel vault ceilings which are still intact today.

The San Jacinto Battleground Conservancy is a Section 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve, reclaim, and restore the San Jacinto Battleground and build greater public awareness of the battle of San Jacinto, the culminating military event of the Texas Revolution.  

No other nonprofit organization is devoted entirely to these goals. The San Jacinto Battleground was included on Preservation Texas' Most Endangered Places list in 2010. Preservation Texas is the statewide partner of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  Visit  www.sanjacintoconservancy.org to find out what you can do to help.  We are so appreciative of your gifts and donations.
