150 years later, a Texas titan is commemorated – Houston Chronicle

“Time’s passage has restored Houston to the pantheon of Texas heroes, and thousands of present-day Texans are expected to throng the old Houston home site this weekend as the Huntsville museum commemorates the 150th anniversary of his death.

The Houston Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/15Je6XZ ) that the observance will begin with a Friday lecture on 19th-century funeral customs. On Saturday, visitors will be offered free tours of the Steamboat House, where, in an upstairs parlor draped for mourning, they will gather around a coffin to interact with actors portraying Houston’s family.”
