Sam Houston: After retiring from my illustrious career in politics and the military, I favored this town as my main retirement living location. In 1862, I rented a house here that I had fallen in love with, called the Steamboat House. It greatly reminded me of my childhood home in Maryville, Tennessee. The following year, my health already on a steady decline, I developed a lingering cough, which eventually turned to pneumonia. I died on July 16th, 1863, at the Steamboat House, with my wife Margaret at my side, having lived to the age of 70.
