GET ON BOARD!...with The Heritage Society's Young Professionals Double Decker Bus Tour co-chaired by

The Heritage Society
The Heritage Society, a museum complex at Sam Houston Park, tells the stories of Houston's diverse history through collections, exhibits, and educational programs. Nestled in ten acres of beautiful green parkland in the heart of downtown Houston, Texas, The Heritage Society operates ten historic structures that date from 1823 to 1905. The Heritage Society exists not just to educate visitors about Houstonís interesting history but also to celebrate the diversity of the people who came together to build this world-class city.

The Heritage Society is funded in part by a grant from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
