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

This is a great place to visit but the museum is under remodeling so it's probably best to wait until the construction is done. The highway department is also changing the exit which would be an additional reason to wait till later. The statue itself...More

This statue is a must see of General Sam Houston, the night time visual while driving on I 45 is something to behold.

Right on the freeway but do not stop on the shoulder. $$$ Ticket for that. Go around to the parking lot. It is a little hard to get to there.

Even if it a bit obnoxious. The story about the man is interesting and the little park at the Base makes it worthwhile. Lovely old house is interesting as well.

You have to see this in person to truely understand how awesomeness of this statue. The staff is friendly and the view is perfect. You walk through nature trail to get to statue. It is a quick adventure that is perfect.
