Modern Address 790 Austin Street

The Houston Telegraph, April 9, 1861 has an ad (dated April 6) for the new Houston BBC. Says they are to practice Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the "Academy Square." This undoubtedly refers to the Houston Academy grounds. The Academy was bounded by Capitol Ave., Austin St., Rusk Ave. and Caroline St. Modern address: 790 Austin St.

This is the site of the first organized play in Houston, if not the first match game.
