Old Stone Fort

The Old Stone Fort Museum stands on the Stephen F. Austin State University campus.
The Stone Fort provided a rallying place for Anglos when they arrived illegally before 1824, or legally after the new Mexican government permitted colonization. Here, volunteers gathered for service in the Texas Revolution, the Civil War, and even the Spanish American War. Efforts to seize Texas from Spain by Augustus Magee (1812) and James Long (1819) also headquartered here. In 1835, the Stone Fort was the central focus of the Battle of Nacogdoches.
