We went to the Sam Houston Statue in Huntsville. It was a nice quiet and easy stroll to see the statue. Very interesting.

Came into town for a band that was playing at the festival. The entire park and streets were blocked off. The park was great. Little trails all around it, with trees and little ponds. There was a lot of people there, but we still managed to find some private places. Very clean. I was glad to see a show there... More

Great place to see historical homes (not mansions) in a near native setting. Combine with trip to the Downtown Houston Tunnels System... do the Park first in the morning, then a treat in the tunnels with shopping, eating, etc.

It was a comfortable walk with houses of different... More

My family and I enjoyed touring the historic village that makes up Sam Houston Park on Bagby Street in Houston, Texas. There are several types of homes from the pioneer days of Texas, and these range from a dark brown wood frame, one-story house to a two-story white brick plantation house. There also also is a quaint little white church,... More

We love historic homes, and those currently open and maintained by the Houston Heritage Society at this site are solid examples of several periods in the city's history. Our docent, while perhaps not the most knowledgeable, was enthusiastic and generally competent. Definitely spend some time in the museum. If you can wait until the remaining buildings have re-opened, do so—but... More

We attended a wedding here and it was perfectly charming. The chapel is well-maintained while keeping its historical appeal.
