      LIVE from the Heritage Society with Mister McKinney

      These free lectures on @MisterMcKinneysHistoricHoustonFaceook Live and @heritagesociety Instagram Live are a great public service that promotes Houston & Harris County history and often focuses on Downtown Houston. We feature a guest every week and also host an audience Q&A afterward with prizes for correct answers. A copy of the past show is available on The Heritage Society's YouTube channel for all to enjoy after they air LIVE.

      The host of the show and executive producer is the Houston History Bus founder and Councilmember Robert Gallegos' District I Historian, Mister McKinney of Mister McKinney's Historic Houston.

      The Heritage Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization focused on education and historical preservation.
