We have been passing this statue of Houston for 20 years. We finally decided to stop and glad we did. This is a free stop with nice restrooms and a teaching moment for the kids. BTW it's a pretty big statue and makes for a great picture.

This was a great thing to go and visit once. We were camping nearby at the Huntsville State Park. So it was very close and fun to go do on a day that was going a little slow. My children enjoyed picking the nose of Sam Houston! What could be more fun than that??? And its free!

Visiting the statue is free, and there is a small information room, and gift shop. Very friendly staff will greet you. The statue itself is 77' high, and is quite impressive up close.

Very interesting. Job well done. The statue is beautiful. It is fun to go around and look at the bricks to see if you know anyone....like Dan Rather for one. The gift shop is worth a visit too. Claudette

Right off 45 Sam Houston stands above the highest trees overlooking the interstate. Impressive statue. If you are driving North you cannot miss it.
