Log Cabin Law Office of Sam Houston

The Law Office of Sam Houston, a Texas Hero
Huntsville, Texas

This painting depicts the historical log cabin interior of the law office of Sam Houston located alongside his dog trot house in Huntsville, Texas. Painted from a photo I shot through the door on the south side, the painting includes a desk, two chairs, law books, and the interior logs and window on the north side of the cabin. A gun powder horn hangs from the chair. History has it that Houston would not allow any woman to enter the law cabin, not his wife nor any female servant. Houston's dog trot house and the law cabin are on the historical register along with the steamboat house where Sam Houston died. All three structures are located in a park across from Sam Houston University in Huntsville.
