Buffalo Bayou Through the Years
DURATION 4 min read
The Buffalo Bayou is a slow-moving river that flows through the heart of Houston. The 52-mile river is an area landmark that played an important role in Houston and Texas history. In 1836, the final battle of Texas Independence was fought and won along the bayou’s banks where it merges with the San Jacinto River. Then, later that year, the Allen brothers established the City of Houston at the confluence of Buffalo Bayou and White Oak Bayou.
