Immaculately preserved 19th-century houses back-dropped by skyscrapers, come capture the relics of Houston's cultural past in one of the city's oldest parks! In 1899, Mayor Sam Brashear appointed Houston's first park committee to oversee the establishment of Sam Houston Park. The 20 acres of land allotted to the park was transformed into an Victorian oasis, with a path meandering past a 52-year old house that had long been used as a school, an old mill and a quaint wooden bridge.
By the 1950s Houston was experiencing an economic boom, and old buildings were rapidly being torn down to make way for new ones. In 1954, in an effort to protect the now century-old Kellum-Noble House, a group of Houstonians banded together to found the Heritage Society. After their success in restoring and protecting the Kellum-Noble house, the Heritage Society went on to preserve numerous other architectural gems by relocating them to the Sam Houston property. The park now showcases an impressive 10 buildings from different eras, ranging from a pre Texas revolution Cabin to the early-twentieth-century Staiti Mansion.
Join us as we travel back in time to marvel at Houston's architectural past!
