Huntsville, TX

City of Huntsville

Huntsville offers visitors an array of discoveries – history, nature, prominent state institutions, antiques – all mixed with hometown hospitality. The small-town, historic flair of Huntsville brings new meaning to ‘Texas Charm’. There is truly something for everyone in Huntsville!

The city had its beginning about 1836, when Pleasant and Ephraim Gray opened a trading post on the site. Ephraim Gray became first postmaster in 1837, naming it after his former home town, Huntsville in Madison County, Alabama.  (Incidentally, “Madison County” is also the name of an adjacent Texas county.)

Huntsville became the home of Sam Houston, who served as the 1st and 3rd President of the Republic of Texas, Governor of the State of Texas, Governor of Tennessee, U.S. Senator, and Tennessee congressman. General Houston led the Texas Army in the Battle of San Jacinto – the decisive victory of the Texas Revolution. Houston has been noted for his life among the Cherokees of Tennessee, and – near the end of his life – for his opposition to the American Civil War, a position which was a very unpopular in his day. Located in Huntsville are two of Houston’s homes, his grave, and the Sam Houston Memorial Museum. Houston’s life in Huntsville is also commemorated by his namesake Sam Houston State University, and by a 77 foot statue. (The towering statue, “Tribute to Courage” by artist David Adickes, has been described as the world’s largest statue of an American hero, and is easily viewed by travelers on Interstate 45.)
 

Huntsville is a city in and the county seat of Walker County, Texas, United States. The population was 45,941 as of the 2020 census. It is the center of the Huntsville micropolitan area. Wikipedia
