Houston is a quiet little town next to Canonsburg and is usually overlooked by Canonsburg. It is not as big, but it is definitely as loving as all the rest. Everyone is very friendly and there is little to no crime that occurs.

This is a good town, small. Everybody knows everybody. It is cute, but very few things are available for entertainment.
During the winter, it's very difficult to live in due to all the hills.
