The Birthplace of Texas

"In reaction to French incursions into territory claimed by Spain, the Spanish established the earliest Texas Presidio in East Teas near Nacogdoches.  Later, after the relocation of the La Bahía mission to Goliad, the Spanish constructed a road through what is now Washington County to connect these two settlements.  The area remained unsettled by Europeans until 1821, when settlers recruited by Stephen F. Austin moved into the region.  According to Austin's colonization plan, participating families would receive 640 acres for the head of the household, 320 acres for the wife, and 100 acres for each child.  Slaveholders would receive an additional 80 acres for each slave possessed.  Many, though not all, of the Old Three Hundred colonists settled in what is now Washington County"
