Historic Site Spotlight: San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site Museum Opening Soon


The San Felipe de Austin was a colony founded by Stephen. F. Austin in 1823 about 50 miles west of what is now Houston. The town was early hub of commerce and governance for American settlers in Texas and played a significant role in the Texas Revolution, though not as deeply recognized by the public as other historic sites in Texas. To expand the public interest and knowledge of San Felipe de Austin, the Texas Historical Commission has initiated a rennovation of the San Felipe de Austin historic site. On April 27, 2018 at 1:30PM, a new 10,000 square-foot state-of-the-art museum will have it's Grand Opening. The facility will educate the public about the Old Three Hundred, Stephen F. Austin, and the role of the town in the Texas Revolution to visitors and school children from the Houston area and from across Texas. The event is free and open to the public.
