Founded in 1899, Sam Houston Park is the first and oldest municipal park in the city of Houston. This beloved historic green space was originally part of the land granted by Stephen F. Austin to John Austin in 1824. For the past 115 years, the park has served Houstonians as a center for outdoor recreation and social activities. This exhibit will showcase Sam Houston Park’s history as well The Heritage Society’s 60-year history of caring for this beloved city park on view through May 31.
