Witness Houston history while on a guided tour of 19th-century homes at The Heritage Society at Sam Houston Park in Downtown.
Located in the heart of Downtown within Sam Houston Park, The Heritage Society museum complex tells the story of the city’s diverse history through their homes, collections, exhibits, educational programs, films and more.
Founded in 1954 by Houstonians who wished to rescue the 1847 Kellum-Noble House from demolition, The Heritage Society has since saved an additional nine historic buildings, moved them from various locations to join the Kellum-Noble House in Sam Houston Park, and restored them to reflect their respective eras.
A time capsule for 19th-century Texas, these ten buildings, along with the Museum Gallery, serve as historic reference points and exhibition spaces for more than 23,000 artifacts that document life in Houston from the early 1800s to the mid-1900s.
