Was Houston ever the Texas State Capital?

Today is day 100 in my legacy journal Question…. Was The State Capital ever Located In Houston?……… Yes, on April 21,1836, with a final battle along the San Jacinto River. Texas gained independence from Mexico, and the provisional government was established in what is now a neighborhood, in Houston known as Harrisburg. However, the capital was soon moved to Houston, was then the capital from 1837 to 1839. After that, the capital was moved again to the newly established city of Austin. The city was officially incorporated on December 27, 1839.
