Located about an hour north of Houston on the eastern side of Texas, Huntsville is a town rich in history. It was founded in 1836 as an Indian Trading Post, and was home to Sam Houston, one of the most colorful figures of 19th century America, because the hills reminded him of his boyhood home in Tennessee. You can easily spend a day at the Sam Houston Memorial Museum, where you will learn about his rich and fascinating life. It will be hard to miss the Sam Houston Statue, which is the tallest extant statue of an American hero. Also interesting is the Texas Prison Museum.
Your Huntsville Texas Bed and Breakfast innkeepers will undoubtedly be happy to share their knowledge of the area. Ask them where to find the best pepper steak in town, or where they like to shop in colorful downtown Huntsville. The Gibbs Bros. building dates from the 1840s, and the shop there is the oldest business in Texas still run by descendents of the original owners at its location on the Huntsville courthouse square. Or, fill up on your Huntsville TX Bed and Breakfast and head out to explore the Sam Houston National Forest or the Huntsville State Park.
