Bear Bend Cabin Dedication

As part of the dual celebrations for Sam Houston's Birthday and 175th Anniversary of Texas Independence in Huntsville, Today@Sam notes the Sam Houston Memorial Museum will dedicate Bear Bend Cabin on Wednesday, March 2. The cabin is located directly across the parking lot from Sam Houston's Historic Woodland Home on the Museum Grounds.

Bear Bend Cabin is a classic double pen, planked log two-story cabin with a central dog trot. Tradition says Sam Houston often stayed here while bear hunting. It was moved six miles from its original site in Montgomery County and restored by B. Carroll and Mae Tharp in 1987. In October 2010 it was moved again to the Sam Houston Memorial Museum grounds and restored.
