Macatee Warehouse

Location: 103 Austin
Unknown photographer / date

Built in 1858, the Macatee Warehouse was a once the center of trade within the city of Houston. The warehouse was located at the SE corner of Austin and Commerce, and sat directly across from the International & Great Northern rail road depot. Today, the Harris County jail sits where the Depot used to be.

In true Houston fashion, the warehouse was demolished for courthouse and jail parking.
