Houston Archeological Society Lecture: "Endangered Historical and Archeological Sites along Buffalo Bayou"


Local historians, writers and avocational archeologists Louis Aulbach and Linda Gorski will present "Endangered Historical and Archeological Sites along Buffalo Bayou." Buffalo Bayou, the waterway on which Houston was founded, contains many historic ruins and archeological sites along its 60-plus miles of banks and adjacent lands. Aulbach and Gorski will discuss several of these sites that are prime subjects for historical archeology, but that are also in danger of being lost to development.

Some of the sites they will discuss include Camp Logan, a World War I training camp in Memorial Park; Shepherd's Dam, which was built near the site of the present Shepherd Drive Bridge; Frost Town, settled in 1836 in a bend on the south bank of Buffalo Bayou; and Harrisburg, once the capital of the Republic of Texas.

The lecture will be held in Building 20, Anderson Hall.
