It was discovered that W. L. Macatee held the first Texas State Fair on his property from the Houston city directory of 1882-83. Also, it was discovered that Macatee was involved in the Houston city government from the Houston city directory of 1887-88. These discoveries only increased the notion that the Macatees were highly involved in the development of Houston. These findings led me to search for articles on this connection that the Macatees had with Houston and what role they played.
