Steamboat House to Open

Sam Houston passed away July 26, 1863 on a small bed in the downstairs parlor room of the Steamboat House. The next day, funeral services were held in the upstairs parlor.

On Friday, July 27, 2012 the Sam Houston Memorial Museum we will open the Steamboat House from 10-2pm for visitors to come into the Steamboat House (this is a very, very rare opportunity) and learn about this important time in Texas history, learn about mourning customs of the time, explore the Steamboat House, and honor Sam Houston and the Houston family.
