Urban Spelunking at The Woodlands

Hidden City's Michael Bixler ducks under William Hamilton's Mansion at the heart of The Woodlands to give readers a peek at the "cryptoporticus," which is currently being renovated with the assistance of a $1 million grant. The so-called cryptoporticus is a "plexus of vaulted, subterranean passageways that became the arteries of the mansion, guiding servants throughout the building's foundation to different points of domestic work spaces within the mansion, basement, and beyond."[Hidden City]
