Recovering the Foundation of Texas History

San Felipe de Austin, a town founded by Stephen F. Austin in 1823, played a pivotal role in events leading up to the Texas Revolution, yet this story is not nearly as well known or understood as others in Texas history, including the Alamo and San Jacinto.

San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site Museum


San Felipe de Austin, a town founded by Stephen F. Austin in 1823, has a fascinating story and played a pivotal role in events leading up to the Texas Revolution, yet this story is not nearly as well known or understood as others in the chronicles of Texas history, including the Alamo and San Jacinto. To increase public understanding of the town’s history and significance, the Texas Historical Commission (THC) is developing a new museum and visitor amenities at San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site, including a welcome/orientation center, exhibits, map plaza, outdoor interpretation, and educational programs focused on the site’s history and archeology.

Experience the nature of Texas’ first colony. Nestled on the banks of the Brazos River, the park provides the opportunity to get up close to nature. Located 30 minutes from the outskirts of Houston, this quiet and peaceful park is a nice escape from busy city life. Come out for the day and enjoy six miles of hiking and biking trails, a picnic area or geocaching. Or spend the night, with a wide variety of campsites, including pull-through 30 amp full hook-up RV sites, and tent campsites. There is also a group campsite for up to 60 people, screened shelters, and a rustic ADA-accessible mini-cabin with a cedar interior.
