Located in the plaza in the Heritage Society complex adjacent to Sam Houston Park, the bronze statue of John B. Connally was created by his daughter, Sharon Connally Ammann. It stands on a granite base incised with his name and the dates of his birth and death. He appears to be striding forward, with a Stetson in one hand and the other in his pocket.

A native Texan, Connally served as Governor of Texas from 1963 - 1969. He had previously worked for then-Representative Lyndon B. Johnson and served as a naval officer, as legal assistant to Secretary of the Navy James V. Forrestal, and on the staff planning the Allied World War II invasion of Italy under General Dwight Eisenhower. Later, President Kennedy appointed him Secretary of the Navy and, as Texas governor, he was wounded in the Kennedy assassination. He served as Secretary of the Treasury under President Nixon.
