The Old Place at Sam Houston Park

The 1823 Old Place was moved from the bank of Clear Creek to Sam Houston Park in 1973 and is an example of early Texas frontier architecture. Roughly hewn cedar logs and mortise and tenon jointure are defining elements of the structure. The interpretive features of the cabin illustrate the hardships faced by immigrants permitted to settle in colonial Texas in Austin’s Colony.
