Heights Blvd in Houston
Part of present day Houston was named Harrisburg during the fracas with Mexico. Harrisburg was burned by Santa Anna shortly before his defeat at San Jacinto. The town began in earnest in 1836 when two brothers stepped ashore from what is today the Houston Ship Channel. Allen's Landing is a few short blocks to Market Square, where nearly all of the historic buildings have been razed.
