Default Anything to see between Houston and Dallas?

I have company coming in next week that wants to also visit Dallas, so we are going to drive up. Since I am very new to the Houston area, I'm not sure if there is anything interesting to stop by on our way there.
Any ideas? Thanks!

There's the world-famous Sam Houston statue just outside Huntsville, of course.

I make that trip pretty regularly (live in DFW with both my family and the in-laws in Houston), and it's a very long and uneventful drive. tstone's suggestion of stopping in at Woody's is a good one. Take a bio break and grab some awesome jerky while you're there. Maybe stop at the giant Sam Houston statue outside of Huntsville. But really, that's about it.

They're right, there's really not much to see. There's a nice prison and it's museum if you'd care to do that. Or, you can stop under the "Prison Area - Do Not Pickup Hitchhikers" sign for some photos but that's about it LOL.

Isn't there a Sam Houston museum as well as the statue in Huntsville?

Yes, stop in Huntsville to see the statue and museum... also:

Sam Houston Memorial Museum
Texas Prison Museum

You could also browse around the SHSU campus if colleges are of interest. I happen to find Huntsville to be a quaint and neat town.
