SIA 46th Annual Conference, Houston, May 18 – 21, 2017

Houston, Texas, will be the location of the Society for Industrial Archeology’s 2017 Annual Conference.

Incorporated in 1877, Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas and the fourth largest in the United States. Oil and petrochemical production has dominated the city’s industrial history. Houston is also a major port city and has played a significant role in the history of space exploration.

The tours and other events associated with the 2017 Annual Conference will take in this industrial history and other aspects of Houston, as well.

Further information will be posted as plans become finalized.
