Transcript ^ Houston's Histony^ Houston and Galveston were always in the running for the economic capital city of Texas. The Allen brothers purchased land that was once Harrisburg for $5000, opening the door for one of the worlds fastest growing cities. With financial backing Houston grew into one of the largest ports in the world. According to the Port of Houston website, the port was the "first in the United States in foreign tonnage and second in total (tonnage; sixth worldwide in total tonnage."
