Transcript Houston, 6,642 acres, cost only $1.40 per acre. That was 150 years ago when the Allen brothers, August and John, decided to own a small town. General Sam Houston rarely stumbled across a glass bottle, much less a glass building, when he roamed the landscape, fighting for independence from Mexico, which his Texas army won on April 12, 1836 at the Battle of San Jacinto. He was elected President of Texas and Houston was the capitol of that Republic from 1837-1840. The sight Houston was founded on was ideal for marketing farm livestock because shallow-draft river boats could easily travel Buffalo Bayou to the Gulf of Mexico. The race was on when oil was discovered at Spindletop in southeast Texas in 1901. Buffalo Bayou became the path of the Houston Ship Channel in 1914. Medical technology and space technology soon followed. Now with over 3Vi million people in the Houston area, a car for an employee at NASA or the Medical Center costs considerably more than what the Allen Brothers bought the city for on August 30, 1836.
