Historic Building Tours

The Heritage Society tells the stories of the diverse history of Houston and Texas through collections, exhibits, educational programs, film, video, and other content.

Founded in 1954 by a number of public-spirited Houstonians to rescue the 1847 Kellum-Noble House from demolition, The Heritage Society has since saved an additional nine historic buildings, moved them from various locations to join the Kellum-Noble House in Sam Houston Park, and restored them to reflect their respective eras.

These ten buildings, along with the Museum Gallery, serve as historic reference points and exhibition spaces for more than 23,000 artifacts that document life in Houston from the early 1800s to the mid-1900s.

Docent-Guided Historic Building Tours are offered Wednesday–Saturday, 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2:30 p.m.
