Want to add to our research?
This has been our first attempt to write a detailed history of the buildings and businesses of Historic Downtown Humble. However, there are many buildings and business that have not been included yet, becuase we either (1) didn't have pictures of the older buildings, or (2) didn't have enough verifiable information to print yet.
If you have any pictures or documents that could add to our history of downtown Humble, please get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures are great, but so are deeds, directories, or anything else we can use for the research.
