He donated the building to the City of Deadwood and placed the operation of the organization in the hands of a board of directors.
The Heritage Society maintains ten historic structures, houses dating from 1823 to 1905 with guided tours and educational programs designed to promote awareness of Houston’s diverse history. “Founded in 1954 by a number of public-spirited Houstonians to rescue the 1847 Kellum-Noble House from demolition, The Heritage Society has since saved an additional nine historic buildings, moved them from various locations to join the Kellum-Noble House in Sam Houston Park, and restored them to reflect their respective eras. These ten buildings, along with the Museum Gallery, serve as historic reference points and exhibition spaces for more than 23,000 artifacts that document life in Houston from the early 1800s to the mid-1900s.”
