Blue Tile Project's Gallery

Houston is a historical city, rich with artifacts from the past that line our city’s streets. It is documented that the blue tile street signs first appeared on the streets of Houston in the early 1920s. A young city at that time, these blue tile street signs are the original street markers of the first paved streets of Houston.

Although Houston has grown into the 4th largest city in the U.S. with population growth and new building contructions, the blue tile street signs have miraculously survived.

These are some of the Blue Tiles created by the community. Have you minted yours yet?
