Harris County Archives

Covering an area larger than the state of Rhode Island, Harris County is the most populous county in Texas and the third most populous in the United States. Founded as Harrisburg County in 1836, it was renamed Harris County in 1839. While much of Harris County is covered by the city of Houston, it includes many other municipalities, including: Baytown, Bellaire, Clear Lake City, Crosby, Deer Park, Friendswood, Humble, Katy, La Porte, Missouri City, Morgan’s Point, Nassau Bay, Pasadena, Seabrook, Spring Valley, Tomball, Waller, and Webster. The films in this collection come to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image courtesy of the Harris County Archives and reflect the range of activities and services that the county provides for its constituents.
