We stopped after going to Huntsville State Park. Nice and friendly people. The gift shop is a bit expensive, compared to others we have shopped. Great photo ops.

Quick stop here and wasn't disappointed. The statue is gigantic and impressive from the road and standing right underneath. The shop is very good but toilets not so.....

67 feet tall and on a 10 foot base, Sam Houston is hard to miss if you are on Interstate 45 about exit 109. There is no place to stop but can take exit 109 to Highway 40 east to Highway 75. You can see him for miles.

I have been by the statue many times, and I am glad we finally stopped.

Sunday the visitor center was closed. We enjoyed the swings on the patio.

They have restrooms available

It was a short walk to the statue. The sculptor did a fantastic job. You can also take pictures with a statue of Sam Houston's head

I loved Sam Houston's quote for leaders. "Govern wisely and as little as possible."

Make the stop while you can

Sam Houston is quite a historical figure for Texas, so it makes sense to have him appear larger than life. Yes, you can see the statue from route 45, but you don't really get the perspective for the size until you walk up to it. It is huge.

The visitor center doesn't open early, but you can still take the short walk through the wooded area out to it without going through the building.

There was no admission fee.
