This is so cool. The statue is "Ginormous" Great to just get off the road and stretch your legs and learn a little about Houston history. Don't forget to sign the guest book!!

Quite a pretentious statue. Had driven by it before but never stopped and visited. Our group was afforded a wine and cheese reception in the statue. FUN

We stopped in to visit Sam Houston on our way home! The visitors center here is well stocked with information about the area and they're very friendly. The gift shop ws fairly priced and had items for all ages! The statue in Huntsville is amazing and the area is clean and worth the stop!

We stopped here after seeing the 67-foot white statue off I-45. It's free to visit. The gift shop area is small and old, but cute and filled with lots of historical information. We learned a lot about the legacy Sam Houston left behind. Bathrooms are clean and well kept. Nice shaded path to walk down to get to the statue.

I can't say anything else. It's a huge statue. White color. I can't write 50 characters about this. Just a huge statue. You can see it from the highway

Physically, Sam Houston stood well over six feet tall. His accomplishments exceeded his stature, and this monument is of a fitting scale. True, you can see it from I-45, but you can't appreciate its size until you stand at its base. I enjoyed my visit, and got information on attractions, restaurants, etc. from the helpful people in the visitor center.... More

I have visited in the past but it was well worth another trip just to watch the reaction of my grandchildren as they rounded the path and came up on this enormous statue. This wonderful work of art was created by the famous David Addicks. You will also see the mold that he used for the face of the statue.... More

This is a required visit for all Texans. The lovely wooded grounds are the perfect setting for the amazing, huge statue. Kids will have a blast! Take lots of pictures.

Extremely large statue that is visible from the highway. Not too difficult to locate. Enjoyed the walk on the trail to get to it, but would not be readily accessible for someone physically handicapped.
