HOUSTON - April 12, 2022 - PRLog -- READ ABOUT THE LANDMARKS AND BUSINESSES THAT HAVE STOOD THE TEST OF TIME AND GIVE HOUSTON ITS UNIQUE IDENTITY

ST. LOUIS, MO
—Reedy Press is pleased to announce the release of our newest local interest book, Oldest Houston, by Lydia Schrandt and Biju Sukumaran.

From the historic downtown Annunciation Church to the first Indian restaurant in the Mahatma Gandhi District, Oldest Houston examines the city through its historic neighborhoods, ethnic enclaves, buildings, and businesses. The tales of its oldest park, music hall, brewery, and BBQ joint reflect the changing face of The Bayou City, its character, and its cultural diversity.

Local journalists Lydia Schrandt and Biju Sukumaran guide you on a journey back in time through Space City. Eat chile con carne enchiladas and sip margaritas from an 80-year-old Tex-Mex restaurant. Walk in the musical footsteps of Willie Nelson and Beyonce at the nation's longest-running recording studio. Get fitted for bespoke cowboy boots from a sixth-generation leatherworker. Picnic in a park built to commemorate Juneteenth, or step inside an 1847 house beneath the gleaming skyscrapers of downtown.

Whether you're new to Houston and looking for an entertaining introduction or a longtime resident digging deeper into your favorite haunts, Oldest Houston will help you look at the nation's fourth-largest city with new eyes.

Oldest Houston is available wherever books are sold. https://www.reedypress.com/shop/oldest-houston/
