Howard and Sharon Mittag

I can’t make this up… but as I Was walking by the pump-jack, Mr. Howard was preparing to start the engine and I spoke with him briefly on the podcast.  Then I continued walking down Main Street in Humble and started talking to Mrs. Sharon.  It wasn’t until a couple hours later that I realized they were actually husband and wife… and I had bet them back-to back at the crowded festival.  Both are wonderful people and introduced me and Oilfield Talk to several people.  Thank you!

The Humble Museum originally opened as the Humble Bicentennial Museum in 1976, as an outgrowth of the City’s U.S. Bicentennial Celebrations. The city built a museum building on Higgins Street, on the west side of the railroad tracks.

In the late 1980s, the museum purchased the old Centel Telephone building at 219 Main Street, on the east side of the railroad tracks. This building was damaged during Hurricane Harvey, forcing the museum to close in August 2017.

Starting in 2019, the City renovated the old band hall building at Charles Bender High School for the museum. The museum moved its collection into the new building in March 2020, just before the COVID quarantine began. After months of work building new displays, the new Humble Museum opened on November 14, 2020.
