The Histopolis Place-of-the-Day for Monday, August 15, 2011 is the Houston County in Texas.

"Houston County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. As of 2000, the population was 23,185. Its county seat is Crockett. Houston County is named for Samuel Houston, a president of the Republic of Texas and Governor of Texas. Houston County was one of forty-six prohibition or entirely dry counties in the state of Texas, until voters in a November 2007 special election legalized the sale of alcohol in the county.

"Houston County was the first new county created under the 9-year Republic of Texas on June 12, 1837. The original boundaries of Houston County also included all of present-day Anderson and Trinity Counties, and portions of present-day Henderson and Polk Counties. Houston County bears no relationship, save its namesake, with the City of Houston, which is located approximately 150 miles (260 km) to the south, in Harris County. A county historical museum is located in a former railroad depot at 303 S. First Street in Crockett."
