The Town of Houston is just a little off the beaten path, comfortably situated between Milford and Harrington off Rt 14 or Milford-Harrington Highway.  Houston residents enjoy a simple, small town atmosphere that can't be found in many other towns these days.

So if you're looking for a small community with deep roots and wide open spaces, then it's worth your time to pay us a visit. 

Thank you for visiting our website.  Have a look around it to see what's going on.
