Word on the Street

If you've ever made the long trek up I-45 from Houston to Dallas, you've probably seen the very large statue of Sam Houston in Huntsville. Dedicated to the City of Huntsville in 1994, the statue is 64 feet tall!If you want to give your kids a little history lesson, bring them up to Huntsville to see Sam in his glory, all 64 feet of it. In fact, you might learn a few things, too, such as the fact that Sam Houston (our city's namesake, obviously) was the governor of Texas when it seceded from the Union in 1859. When he refused to pledge allegiance to the Confederacy, he was removed from his position as governor.How's that for standing up for your beliefs?Sam Houston retired to Huntsville, where he died at 6:15 pm on July 26, 1863. To get to the visitor's center, take I-45 North to Huntsville and exit #116. Follow the road for a mile.
