The Heritage Society at Sam Houston Park


Today, as we enter the 21st Century, The Heritage Society at Sam Houston Park continues to be a dynamic and vibrant part of the City of Houston and the great State of Texas. Sam Houston Park remains one of Houston's premier open green spaces.

The Heritage Society

The Heritage Society was founded in 1954 by renown Houstonians Faith Bybee, Harvin C. Moore and Marie Phelps in order to save the 1847 Kellum-Noble House from demolition. They had one goal in mind: preserve the hastily disappearing past of this great city for the education of future generations.

The Heritage Society is the city's only outdoor, interactive historic museum and park. Nestled in ten acres of beautiful green parkland in the heart of downtown Houston, The Heritage Society boasts ten historic structures dating from 1823 to 1905. Each year, The Heritage Society hosts countless school-aged children and visitors from around the world. Folks come from near and far to learn about the families and the lifestyles that inhabited these historic homes - what life was really like in frontier times for early settlers in Houston.  

Admission to tour the historic structures: $15 adult, $12 senior, $6 Children (618) and children under 6 free.
