Stephen F. Austin

 

This will be the first special history event hosted at the site since the new museum facilities opened in April. To commemorate the stories of Stephen F. Austin and his settlers, the event will offer themed programming related to historical events that occurred around Austin’s birthday in the years 1821-1836.

The event will include hands-on programming for children and families, living history demonstrations including surveying and printing activities, guest authors/lecturers, thematic tours of the grounds and the museum and much more. That Saturday will also mark the conclusion to Texas Archeology Month as the site finishes up some active excavation work near the museum. This is a free event (donations accepted).

As the headquarters of Stephen F. Austin’s Colony in Mexican Texas, the historic town of San Felipe de Austin played a pivotal role in the arrival of American settlers and the ultimate story of independence. Serving as a political, economic and social crossroads in early Texas, San Felipe de Austin and its residents have deep connections to the events that took place at all of the prominent Texas Revolution sites including the Alamo.

A wide array of stories and activities will help attendees celebrate this chapter of Texas history in style. Local stakeholders have commemorated Austin’s birthday at the site since the 1920s.

The event is hosted by the Friends of the San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site as well as area supporters including Walmart and the Mark A. Chapman Foundation.

The site and museum are open every day from 9 am to 5 pm

Come celebrate with us with fun and informative activities for all ages.

COLONIAL TEXAS HERITAGE DAY PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS,
Colonial Texas Heritage Day has its origins in honoring Stephen F. Austin’s November 3rd birthday. San Felipe was the home of Stephen F. Austin, the “Father of Texas,” during all his life in Texas, except the last few months after his home burned, and

WHEREAS,
Conventions of 1832 and 1833 and the consultation of 1835 were held at San Felipe as a prelude to the Texas Declaration of Independence, and

WHERE AS,
The colonists realized a confrontation with the Mexican Government was inevitable, it was clear to them that lines of communication would have to be kept open with the colonists. As a result, the Texas Postal System was established in San Felipe in 1835, and San Felipe was the Colonial Capital of Texas and was the Social, Economic, and political hub until 1836, and

WHEREAS,
During the Texas Revolution, William B. Travis, a San Felipe Lawyer, and his men, left for the Alamo and whereas, Travis’ immortal message of “Victory or Death” was sent to San Felipe “by Express night & day,” and

WHEREAS,
A company of men led by Moseley Baker, with the San Felipe Flag, handmade by the women of the settlement, defended the river crossing after the town was burned on March 29, 1836 to slow the advance of the Mexican Army, and

WHEREAS,
the “ranging” companies that would eventually be known as Texas Rangers began at San Felipe; and whereas, the Texas Declaration of Independence was published by the Telegraph and Texas Register in 1836 in San Felipe and later signed at Washington-on-the-Brazos.

Look – are those the three Wise men coming afar? So many others are here also. There's Santa, Frosty the Snowman, the Sugarplum Fairy, a toy train, Christmas trees, toy soldiers, and the nativity scene. Then, out of the darkness at the end of main Street, march hundreds of children singing, bands playing, and floats covered with lights, slowly making their way down to Fantasy Park.

Attendance: 12,500+

Tours Offered to Celebrate Attwater’s Prairie Chicken Festival

Prairie Chicken

In April, the public is invited to the Attwater’s Prairie Chicken (APC) Festival for a chance to see the critically endangered birds during the booming season – a time the males gather to perform their elaborate courtship ritual.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) staff and volunteers will be conducting guided tours to the “booming” grounds, which provide the best chance to see the typically elusive birds.

Participants will tour areas that are normally closed to the public and will hear first-hand how the FWS and its partners are working to recover the APC, including refuge management efforts and coastal prairie ecosystem issues. The tours are about two hours in length.

All the walking and driving tours will begin at the refuge’s visitor center.
Those interested in learning more about the festival should contact the Attwater Prairie Chicken National Wildlife Refuge at (979) 234-3021, ext. 221 or 223.

The APC is an endangered grouse that is unique to Texas gulf coastal areas. Over a century ago, there were around one million APCs living on six million acres of the Texas and Louisiana gulf coastal prairie. Today, less than one percent of their original habitat remains and their numbers are extremely low. The festival brings much needed attention to a bird that, though critically endangered, continues to remain on the landscape thanks to strong partnerships and sound science.
