History At Night: Eleven Days on the Colorado – The Pivotal Battle Unfought with author James E. Brasher

Our June History at Night event will not longer be Eleven Days on the Colorado, that program has been postponed until the fall. We apologize for the swap, and we are still looking forward to the James Brasher's talk, just later in the year.
Instead this program will be a staff lead program, about something that makes San Felipe de Austin unique! It will still be at 6 pm in the Learning Hall at San Felipe and is as always a free program!

See the antique tools of the trade and learn how they were used.

The French Legation was once home to Dr. Joseph Robertson, one of the first doctors in Austin. Many of these practices were standard to Roberson’s career.
