Huntsville, Texas

Huntsville was founded as an Indian trading post in 1836, the year of Texas independence. Sam Houston was one of many prominent early Texans who lived here.

Today Huntsville is yours to explore. Adventures begin here in one of Texas' oldest cities. It's the location of the headquarters of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Institutional Division, and home of Sam Houston State University. Well kept, restored turn-of-the-century homes dot the city. The historic downtown area, a Texas Main Street City, is home to a variety of antique, and arts and crafts shops.

Be sure to see the beautiful mural of Sam Houston by architectural illusionist Richard Haas on the northeastern edge of the square. The annual "Fair on the Square" festival is held the first Saturday in October.
