Sam Houston State University

Exhibit - El Camino Real de los Tejas: Its History, People and Places

Beginning, Tuesday, January 12, the Sam Houston Memorial Museum will present “El Camino Real de los Tejas:  Its History, People and Places,” a traveling exhibit that looks at the trail that extended from Mexico, across Texas, and into Louisiana. Some may know it as the King’s Highway or the Old San Antonio Road.  Today, the trail is designated as a National Historic Trail. 

The exhibit focuses on three themes: the role of the trail in cattle drives to support the American Revolution, it’s influences on settlement patterns throughout Texas and Louisiana, and how to see and experience the Camino today.  

El Camino Real will be on display January 12 to March 21, 2021 in the exhibit gallery at the Katy & E. Don Walker, Sr. Education Center, a part of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum Complex in Huntsville, Texas.  Exhibit gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday noon to 4 p.m.
