Susanna Dickinson secured her place in Texas history by being one of the few people to survive the Battle of the Alamo. Her escape gave her the chance to recount the events to Sam Houston and earned her the title “Messenger of the Alamo.” The Susanna Dickinson Museum is located in the rubble-rock-style home that her fifth husband, Joseph Hannig, built for her in 1869. You can get a sense of her life along with the legacy of Alamo defenders and survivors through the personal possessions and period furniture on exhibition inside.
