Buffalo Bayou Silos – Houston

N. Nagle St. at Buffalo Bayou – Houston TX

 

These gravel silos were more than likely originally part of the Horton & Horton Building Materials complex at 621 N. Live Oak St., later Parker Bros. Sand & Gravel (which also had a site on Navigation Blvd.). While Horton & Horton had been at that site since the 1950s, the silos weren’t built until the late 1960s/early 1970s.
