Looking at this picture of Houstonís famous Shamrock Hotel should bring back great memories of some of the unbelievable moments that many Houstonians shared during its thirty-eight years of service to the community. But in the name of progress this grand and historical landmark, which at one time was a green beacon for all who came to visit Houston and even those who lived here to use as a retreat, was unfortunately demolished forever on Dec. 26,1987.
The purpose of this section, is to highlight Houston's remarkable historical mansions, homes and buildings, as well as to provide some insight into the people that were connected to them and hopefully stir great interest and civic pride in preserving Houston's Heritage. This section has been compiled from many sources and includes photographs of the city's historical residences and commercial structures.
