The Sam Houston Memorial Museum is an educational institution that teaches about the exciting history of Texas and the life of Sam Houston and his family through a variety of programs and exhibits. The complex is situated on 15 acres of the original farm of over 200 acres owned by General Sam Houston and his family from 1847-1858.
This cabin functioned as Sam's unofficial office during his tenure as a U.S. Senator.
The Rotunda is the most distinctive landmark on the grounds of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum complex. It contains Sam Houston's artifacts and provides exhibits on events surrounding the Republic of Texas, Sam Houston's family, Texas' Annexation, the Mexican War and Civil War.
Centrally located on the Museum grounds, the Wigwam Neosho museum store has Texas-inspired gifts and souvenirs for all ages!
The store is open during Museum hours or you can shop our online store.
Various historical demonstrations are held throughout the year such as spinning & weaving, kick wheel pottery and blacksmithing. In addition, educational events are held year-round such as the General Sam Houston Day and Houston Family Christmas.
The Houstons lived in the Steamboat House after they returned to Huntsville in 1862. This is where Sam spoke his last words "Texas, Texas Margaret."
