I got a note recently from the Texas Historical Commission saying various Historical Sites will offer free admission on Saturday, May 3rd.
If you live in the Sugar Land area, I saw three sites that are within easy distance.
Click here to details on the Levi Jordan Plantation home in Brazoria County. It showcases local agricultural history and the African-American experience in Texas.
Click here to view details on San Felipe de Austin in Austin County. Stephen F. Austin founded San Felipe de Austin as his colony's administrative capital. A state park offering hiking, biking, camping, and canoeing is close by if you're interested in those activities, too.
Click here to view details on the Varner-Hogg Plantation in Brazoria County. It is the site of a restored, stately plantation home once owned by the Hogg family.
