Located on Interstate 45 right outside of Huntsville, TX is a giiiiinormous statue of the first president of the Republic of Texas, Sam Houston. I have passed that statue innumerous times and to my recollection have never actually stopped and gone over to see it. It’s one of those “oh, I’ll do it some day” type situations, and the other day I passed it and figured that I had a couple of minutes to spare and it would be that day.
A very well kept path to the statue
For any of you who think I have a big head… exhibit A
These are probably poisonous? I probably should have paid more attention to Professor Sprouts Herbology lessons in the Harry Potter
Get it little Texas hero!
In cast you nerds out there wanted a little historical information
I remember a couple of years ago there was a big “to do” in Crockett because the sculptor who made the Sam Houston statue was rumored to possibly be doing it outside of our little town. However, I think he ended up doing it in Crockett County, which happens to be in the middle of now where (as opposed to the slightly left of no where where I grew up).
And for a little bit of furniture trivia... we have a sofa in our house in Crockett that belonged to Sam Houston's granddaughter. Basically what I am saying is that we have a piece of Texas royalty, probably on par with a Louis the XIVV chaise or something.
