About Houston Historian Mister McKinney......

Join Houston Historian & TV's Mister McKinney as he talks about his series, Mister McKinney's Historic Houston, which travels to HISD and La Porte ISD elementary, middle and high schools, educating and informing Houston's future about its past.

Mister McKinney is an active member in the historical community, he lectures, gives weekly tours onboard Houston's only mobile history classroom, the Houston History Bus, and serves on the boards and commissions of numerous non-profit museums, libraries, educational organizations, including the Harris County Historical Commission, The Heritage Society at Sam Houston Park, the LaPorte Bay Area Historical Society, president of the Bellaire Historical Society and vice president of the Harris County Historical Society, the oldest area historical non-profit started in 1923.

Since 2008 Mister McKinney has served as the resident historian for the Emmy Award-winning KHOU Channel 11's Great Day Houston with Deborah Duncan, appearing every two weeks with a segment on Houston History, and in August of 2016, Mister McKinney, chaired the City of Houston's 180th Birthday Party at Sam Houston Park with Mayor Sylvester Turner and honorary chair Council Member Robert Gallegos, an event he has carried on every year since.

McKinney will present his take on important historical facts every Houstonian should know, including his favorite "Top 10 Things about Historic Houston Every Houstonian Should Know" and his "Gone From Houston" series that features landmark buildings, places, and experiences gone from the Houston landscape. You can also catch Mister McKinney's weekly radio show on 90.1 FM KPFT called "The Houston Hour with Mister McKinney and Catherine Ansopn" (Ms. Anspon is PaperCity Magazine's editor) at 12pm noon every Tuesday!
