On Dec. 6, the Sam Houston Schoolhouse came alive for the holiday season during an open house at the historic structure and museum. Co-manager Bob Bell said he and his wife, Mary Lynne, co-manage the school and museum made famous by Sam Houston, a former Tennessee governor who went onto fame in Texas.
“We just had a general open house for the community,” Bob Bell said. “We had folks in and had a little party, decorated the school in the old fashioned decorations and had refreshments. It was just a general good time - a thank you party to the general public that we have every Christmas.”
Musician Bill Cabbage performed and kept the mood was light and festive, said Bell. “We had a good holiday with between 70 and 75 people attending. Everybody seemed to have a good time.”
