Stone Fort Museum

Stone Fort Museum

The campus of Stephen F. Austin State University is home to a fort, and not just any fort. A fort that was a trading post, private home, church, jail, and saloon - but never a fort. A fort that was built three times, and a fort that was torn down by men to be re-erected by women. The museum puts special emphasis on the Spanish Mission Tejas and ending with the overthrow of the Mexican government in 1836 by Texas revolutionists.
