DON’T STAY HERE. BE HERE.
Grow here. Explore here. Indulge here. But don’t stay still.
Because you are on a journey, my friend, and it will be what you make it.
To be clear, we are not saying you shouldn’t relax here. Far from it.
We’re just pointing out a simple truth: This is the time you are given. There is no better time to make your mark.
No place is born in a day and neither are the stories that made it. Charlotte Baldwin – Mother of Houston and unacknowledged visionary – was an explorer and a builder. A freethinker and an unparalleled go-getter. 1836 did not afford Charlotte the opportunity to leave her mark on all she created.
Today, we honor Charlotte’s tenacity and vision by proudly putting her name on the door.
It’s time for Charlotte to emerge from the shadows and honor her legacy. Nestled in the heart of the Allen Center, we celebrate the woman who dedicated her life to our city.
