(usually the Second Saturday of the Month)
The Town of San Felipe, its citizens, and the members of the Friends of San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site have been celebrating the birthday of Stephen F. Austin for over 90 years – through the Great Depression, and World War II, and on through the present year.
Join us and enjoy presentations and stories that highlight the road we’ve travelled so far, and lays a trail for where we plan to go in the future.
Hosted by San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site and Texas Historical Commission
This will be a special history event 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.
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.
