Braches House and Sam Houston Oak

This plantation style house was built in the 1840s. The house became a stopping place for wagon trains, stages and mail hacks. After the fall of the Alamo General Sam Houston ordered the burning of Gonzales. A large oak tree near the home will forever be known as "The Sam Houston Oak", because it was where the general is said to have rested on his first stop during The Runaway Scrape.
