The Heritage Society is an outdoor museum in the reflection of modern downtown Houston giving a glimpse of the city's rich history.

In ShortEver wondered about the group of houses that seem to spring up along the Allen Parkway end of downtown? You know which ones, you driving along, skyscraper, skyscraper, library, whoa, log cabin? One of those smaller, storefront buildings (facing Bagby) is the Heritage Society, a small museum that offers a short introduction to the early history of Texas. Complete with buffalo and longhorn heads on the walls, a Disney-fied reproduction of a general store (the real parts of which actually came from Egypt, Texas) and the inevitable 15-minute video (narrated by our own Ron Stone).

My family and I enjoyed touring the historic village that makes up Sam Houston Park on Bagby Street in Houston, Texas. There are several types of homes from the pioneer days of Texas, and these range from a dark brown wood frame, one-story house to a two-story white brick plantation house. There also also is a quaint little white church,...

A fascinating slice of history

We love historic homes, and those currently open and maintained by the Houston Heritage Society at this site are solid examples of several periods in the city's history. Our docent, while perhaps not the most knowledgeable, was enthusiastic and generally competent. Definitely spend some time in the museum. If you can wait until the remaining buildings have re-opened, do so—but...

The Extras

The Tea Room caters events such as wedding receptions, special dinners, cocktail parties, and on- and off-site meetings. John B. Connally Plaza, also in the park, is an outdoor facility available for events.

The Extras

The main point of the museum seems to be a (successful) whetting of your appetite for the guided tours of the houses, which are conducted every 30 minutes, for a fee. If you want the museums free parking, keep a sharp eye out for the parking lot on the right just before you hit downtown.
