What's HOT about our SPOT? Huntsville, Texas...

Dive into the Blue Lagoon...What's hot about our spot?

I live in the Great Piney Woods of Texas. Huntsville is in Walker County and is 35,078+ people proud. Another 17,000 students at Sam Houston State University fill our streets at any given time! My mother moved me to Huntsville when I was all of 12 years old. I was an Indiana girl brought to the country. It was a culture shock at the time but now I'm all Texas! I spent many years out and about in this old world but this little town called me back. I am proud to call Huntsville Texas my home!

If you are thinking of Relocating, Retiring, or just need to slow down the pace, Huntsville is the place to be! Real Estate in town and on Lake Livingston is still affordable and available. Retire here and you will be close to major shopping without having to battle the traffic of larger cities. Move your family here and enjoy Top Notch schools, and an extremely low crime rate.

We are blessed with the historical tales of Sam Houston himself and offer a terrific Museum with artifacts and his original homestead filled with authentic relics. Our town square is quaint with gorgeous architecture and historic buildings. Antiquing is one of my favorite past times while walking the square.

The feeling of Pride is everywhere. Sam Houston State University brings culture and talent to our city.

Sam Houston Statue-EVERYTHING'S BIGGER IN TEXAS!

It's the world's tallest statue of an American hero Huntsville, Texas. Native David Adickes turned 60,000 pounds of concrete and steel into a towering 70-foot statue of General Sam Houston. Mounted atop a 10-foot, granite-sheathed base, the statue is visible for more than six miles.
