as we enter the 21st Century, The Heritage Society at Sam
Houston Park continues to be a dynamic and vibrant part of the City of
Houston and the great State of Texas. Sam Houston Park remains one of
Houston's premier open green spaces.
Society was founded in 1954 by renown Houstonians
Faith Bybee, Harven Moore and Marie Phelps in order to save the
1847 Kellum-Noble House from demolition. They had one goal in mind:
preserve the hastily disappearing past of this great city for the
education of future generations.
Society is the city's only outdoor, interactive historic museum and park.
Nestled in 19 acres of beautiful green parkland in the heart of
downtown Houston, The Heritage Society boasts 8 historic structures dating
from 1823 to
1905. Each historic structure is authentically restored to
reflect its original magnificence. Each year, The Heritage Society hosts
countless school-aged children and visitors from around the world. Folks
come from near and far to learn about the families and the lifestyles that
inhabited these historic homes - what life was really like in frontier
times for early settlers in Houston.
Admission to tour the
historic structures: $6 adult, $4 senior, $2 children (6-12), free
