Virtually Explore Sam Houston Park

A “proud oasis of living history,” Sam Houston Park dates back to 1899. Its 20-acre property included scenic trails and the 52-year-old Kellum-Noble House. Today, the home still stands and has been joined by other historic buildings restored and relocated to the park by The Heritage Society. If you would like to journey back in time, enjoy a virtual tour to learn about Texas’ early residents. Here is some of what you can discover from our Houston apartments:

Fourth Ward Cottage 

Originally located in Houston’s Fourth Ward, the Fourth Ward Cottage was home to an immigrant family from Germany. It became a rental property between 1883 and 2001. Over the years, residents made modifications to meet their changing needs. Watch the videos to learn about relocating the home and the objects discovered by the park’s staff and volunteers. 

Nichols-Rice-Cherry House 

Constructed in the Greek Revival style in 1850, the Nichols-Rice-Cherry House was moved several times during its life as a private residence. It became the first historic structure moved into the park in 1959. The elegant furnishings showcase the lifestyle of William Marsh Rice, who was one of Houston’s wealthiest men when he called the house home.
