We found this eventually as the signage wasn’t great but were slightly disappointed as it wasn’t too large compared to other cities but then there is less history here but more if a reason to try and preserve it!

I came to this square to see the original houses of Houston but it was not worth it. Sam Houston park does a much better job of presenting them.

It is a must go in Houston. An old market square in well-designed downtown Houston. Tall buildings have good architectural designs.

Jim Parsons was totally entertaining in presenting wonderful fascinating information about the history of Market Square in downtown Houston. We walked around Market Square and then around the area. It was fun and interesting. I hope to go on other tours.

It was a quiet Saturday morning when we wandered through downtown Houston. Restaurants and bars, many of them, just started opening and it was very nice to see old brick buildings secluded beneath modern glass and steel high rises. The area felt very safe.
