Often described as “Houston’s heart,” Allen’s Landing is the spot where in 1836 that August C. and John K. Allen stepped ashore and claimed Houston as their own. The confluence of Buffalo and White Oak bayous became Houston’s first port and a thriving commercial hub. Currently, 1.76-acre Allen’s Landing is undergoing major revitalization and rejuvenation.
