San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site
220 2nd Street, San Felipe, TX 77473 - United States
Commemorating the location where, in 1823, Stephen F. Austin established a headquarters for his colony in Mexican Texas, San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site and museum share the stories of early settlers in this region. Today, visitors can walk in the footsteps of these early pioneers at what was the social, economic, and political center of American emigration to Texas before independence. San Felipe de Austin didn’t survive the war for Texas independence -- it was burned by its own residents as they evacuated during the Runaway Scrape of 1836.
