Lovely collection of classic homes and churches. Awesome displays of turn of the century artifacts used by early settlers and freed slaves. I highly recommend the tour. It's one thing to see these structures from the outside, but you'll be blown away by the interiors of these homes and churches. The tour guy was extremely impressive and his knowledge of the structures as well as Houston history make it worth while.
A really nice exploration into Houston’s past. The tour is$15/person and the museum is $5 - both are less for seniors and children. The tour takes a little over 1 hr and gives a detailed look at 3 houses on the museum site. Overall, tour was well done and the homes are well preserved and furnished. The grounds are well kept and a popular spot for special events.
A calm oasis in downtown Houston makes for a wonderful afternoon getaway from the skyscrapers and traffic. Here you can find some historical old buildings and artifacts from the past. There is a literal oasis in the park that divides the modern park from the museum. It's hard not to get lost in the stunning beautifulness of the place. You might even learn a thing or two. Would recommend a visit at least once.
Just enjoyed a delightful tour of the gallery and museum at the Heritage Society in Downtown Houston. Sheryl, the leader of the docents did a great job of providing information on the houses that are displayed and protected at the site. You can't get a better review of Houston history than by seeing the ten buildings on the site. Not only is the parking free, an almost unheard of delight in downtown Huntsville, but it is easy to get in and out of as well. Check it out. It's worth a visit.
Great place to visit to see all of the historical homes. Nice for a free family day of fun. I would recommend.
