There were making some repairs to the visitor center, but you still can walk up to the statue. It is very big and in need of some repairs. I think his finger is going to come down. The staff was very informative.

The statue of Sam Houston is huge and a great photo opportunity. Easy access right off US45. A nice place to stop.

You have to look for the Sam Houston statue when you are going through Huntsville on I-45. This is an awesome sight. A larger than life statue for the larger than life founding father of Texas.

This road side attraction is definitely unique and memorable. It is even mentioned at the SHSU orientation sessions. You can see it from the roadside.

Tens of thousands of persons drive by this lovely spot on I-45, near Huntsville, TX. While too few people stop, THEY SHOULD. The statue is a lovely tribute to one of Texas's most colorful and important figures. Sam Houston was the only person who was...More
