|Facility:||Samuel May Williams Home|
|Description:||Samuel May Williams, Founder of the Texas Navy and secretary to Stephen F. Austin, teamed up with Michel Menard to lay plans for a new city; Williamsís house,built in 1839 is second oldest in the city he created, second only to Menardís. This unpretentious Creole planterís-style house includes a romantic rooftop cupola (restored after being destroyed by fire in the 1890s). The first floor was buried during the grade raising after the 1900 storm.
A self-guided video tour gives a vivid dramatization of the lives of the Williams frontier family, bringing the past alive.
