According to the Texas Parks & Wildlife website (www.tpwd.state.tx.us) “It was here Stephen F. Austin, the "Father of Texas," brought the first 297 families to colonize Texas under a contract with the Mexican Government. From 1824 to 1836, San Felipe de Austin was the social, economic, and political center, as well as the capital of the American colonies in Texas. Due to the many historic events that occurred here, the community acquired the reputation 'Cradle of the Texas Liberty.'"  Today you can relive history by visiting the San Felipe Historical Site.

 

Be sure to visit the San Felipe State Historical Site…The Stephen F. Austin (historical) Park lies beside the Brazos River on FM 1458.  This history section of the park encompasses 17 acres of land detached from the larger recreational park.  The historic site contains 7 blocks of the original capital with the old well remaining as the only original entity of the town.  The park has added objects, including a store, museum, cabin replica, monument, and memorial markers to tell the story of the website.”Austin’s First Colony, prepared by the Texas Independence Trail.  For more information contact (979) 885-3043
