They have a nice gift shop, and it's fun to take pictures up close and personal. It's not gonna change your life, and you can do it in 10 minutes including buying a postcard, but if you're along the Huntsville Interstate, it's a fun stop.

We actually stopped at this in July 2010, but we have driven by him many times. The best part about getting up close were the plaques at the base of the statue. Unless you really want to have some pictures of you with the man, then keep on driving.

The best thing about stopping to visit the huge statue, apart from taking a good look up close, is the opportunity to learn a bit about this giant of a man in Texas and U.S. history. Sam Houston is honored in Huntsville because he made his home there at the time of his death in 1863. He would have nothing to do with the Confederacy, so he resigned as Governor of Texas after the vote to secede from the Union and retired to Huntsville. It's a short pleasant walk though the woods from the visitor center to the statue. Admission is free.

It's just a big concrete statue. Don't bother. You see it from the highway. The little shop attached to it is tiny.
