On my way back home, I drove through the tiny town of Houston in Perry County. Houston was incorporated in 1908, and its population grew thanks to it being a stop on the Choctaw, Oklahoma, and Gulf Railroad. The town currently has a population of about 160, and the rail line still runs through the middle of town (although it doesn't stop here). Near the tracks is the old Houston Methodist Church, which might be one of the prettiest abandoned churches in the state. The church was constructed in 1912, and closed in the 1990s.
