History: Houston gained its name in 1836, inspired by the Hero of San Jacinto, Sam Houston. Houston was a small town that was home to twelve residents along with a single log cabin. In the early 1900’s, the discovery of oil at Spindletop in Beaumont, Texas, turned Houston into a bustling city. On July 4th, 1962, NASA opened what is now known as the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, bringing jobs and economic growth to the city. Currently, Houston is one of the largest cities in the U.S., with a population of over 2.3 million.
