The four statues found in the park are of Harvey Mitchell, “The Father of Brazos County,” and the threesome: Eli Seale, one of the first 11 Texas Rangers; Sam Houston, a regular visitor to Boonville; and Hiram Hanover, Brazos County’s first postmaster.

Boonville Heritage Park is the last preserved remnant of the town of Boonville, the original county seat of Brazos County. Occupying 11.29 acres, the park is home to the Turner-Peters dogtrot log cabin, an original 1856 structure furnished with 19th-century pieces that were typical to the Texas frontier, The park’s exhibits also include the Twin Sister’s Cannon, a smokehouse, a Boonville County Courthouse, and a local Masonic Lodge.
