Houston, TX – On Monday, November 10, 2014, local and elected officials celebrated a centennial of success during the Houston Ship Channel’s 100 Year Rededication Ceremony.

HSC was formally opened in 1914 under the salute of President Woodrow Wilson’s cannon after a long history that dates back to the 1830’s. A ceremony and parade to open the channel, a long-sought accomplishment, was held on November 10, 1914. One hundred years later, Houstonians are gathering to celebrate the Channel with the same enthusiasm this Monday, November 10th.

“The Channel has given us a lot to be proud of,” Congressman Gene Green said. “I’ve never seen development and prosperity in Houston like there is today, and the ship channel has a lot to do with that. By the end of 2015, we’ll see some of the largest ships ever constructed navigating the Houston Ship Channel. To maximize efficiency, productivity, and safety, we need to widen and deepen the ship channel, and that requires dredging and funding. Since the days of Jesse Jones, Houstonians and the nation have seen almost non-stop industrial expansion up and down the ship channel but we’ve got work to do if we want to see that growth continue.”
