“Following General Sam Houston”

“Following General Sam Houston”

Olivia Flores Alvarez

Historic figure Sam Houston isn’t just a name in a history book. He was a real man who lived, worked and died. In the case of Houston, he spent some of his time in Texas and the events of his life were chronicled by artist and historian Bernhardt Wall including etchings for a pictorial biography of the general. It’s those etchings that make up the bulk of “Following General Sam Houston, 1793 to 1863 by Bernhardt Wall,” an exhibit currently on display at the Heritage Society. Wall made the etchings in 1935 while in La Porte, near the San Jacinto Battleground. Wall worked with Houston’s only surviving son, Andrew Jackon Houston, on the etchings. One of the images shows Houston entering the 1850 Nichols-Rice-Cherry house that happens to be located at Sam Houston Park, just feet from the Heritage Society Museum. Also on display are personal objects from the Houston family.

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays. Through August 2. The Heritage Society, 1100 Bagby. For information, call 713-655-1912 or visit heritagesociety.org. Free.
