Houston is a great place to visit and an even better place to live.  Houston is located in the southeast corner of Minnesota. This area escaped the effects of glaciation during the last ice age and is characterized by steep, forested ridges, deeply carved river valleys and karst geology characterized by spring fed, cold water trout streams. The Houston area offers opportunities for biking, hiking, canoeing, camping, fishing, hunting and is home to the International Owl Center. We hope to see you soon.

Can you help solve a Houston Art Mystery?

The paintings below come with an interesting story. They were said to have been painted by a traveling artist in exchange for food and or board. Two of the paintings are signed "ASH" and dated 1934. The third painting is not signed nor dated but appears to have been painted by the same artist. ASH could be the artist’s last name or initials. The paintings are roughly 3.5 ft by 8 ft and were displayed in the A & M cafe in Houston. If you have any additional information about these paintings please contact me at mikemark@acegroup.cc.
