The Huntsville Item

“Sam Houston: A Texas Icon” is on display in the exhibit gallery at the museum’s Katy & E. Don Walker, Sr. Education Center until Aug. 25. Sam Houston remains a larger-than-life figure in Texas and American history with a career that spanned the Texas Revolution, the Republic of Texas, annexation, early statehood and the state’s secession from the Union in 1861.

“Sam Houston: Texas Icon” traces the life and career of Houston from his boyhood in Virginia and Tennessee through his retirement and eventual passing in Huntsville, Texas.

The exhibition is produced by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. This exhibition is made possible in part by funding from the Summerlee Foundation and a We the People grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
