Friends of the Log House
The Pioneer Memorial Log House was built in 1936 by the San Jacinto Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas as a Houston hospitality center to commemorate the Texas Centennial. It is now a teaching center, a venue for private functions and a meeting site of the San Jacinto Chapter DRT. The mission of the Log House is to collect and preserve documents and relics related to the early history of Texas, Texians, and Houston and to encourage the study of Texas history through exhibits, literature and educational programs.
The Friends of the Log House was begun as a vehicle to give continued support of this historic building. Membership is open to anyone who loves Texas history and wants to help us foster that passion and enthusiasm.We encourage friends and acquaintances to join us in continuing our mission of preserving the past and protecting the future of our state's history.
