The Wagon Wheel was a drag club in the 1930s that operated out on Airline Drive near Little York, back when that was way on the outskirts of town. After the sheriff refused to yield to public pressure to shut it down, that public took maters into it’s own hands and burned it to the ground. We learned about The Wagon Wheel from JD Doyle’s houstonlgbthistory.org and the librarians at the Texas Room of the Julia Ideson building at the Public Library helped us narrow down the most likely location of the club to a couple of blocks radius.
