If you are driving by Huntsville on Interstate 45 you can't miss the Sam Houston Statue standing beside the road. No matter how much you want to, DO NOT STOP ON THE INTERSTATE. It is not only illegal but very dangerous. That the exit and...More

There were making some repairs to the visitor center, but you still can walk up to the statue. It is very big and in need of some repairs. I think his finger is going to come down. The staff was very informative.

The statue of Sam Houston is huge and a great photo opportunity. Easy access right off US45. A nice place to stop.

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

It was fun to walk up to the statue and appreciate its grandeur up close. Worth seeing at least once.
