A Little History...

The region was originally settled by two of Stephen F. Austin’s “old 300” families, Joel Leakey and James Stevenson, who, in the early 1830s, were among the first to choose prime locations in Texas. Remarkably, the descendants of these pioneering settlers continue to reside in the area.

In January 1821, Moses Austin, the father of Stephen F. Austin, obtained a permit from the Spanish authorities to establish a settlement of 300 families in Texas. Tragically, Moses Austin passed away in Missouri shortly thereafter, before he could see his ambitious plans come to fruition.

Stephen F. Austin, known as the “Father of Texas,” later carried on his father’s work and is famous for leading the colonization efforts in Texas during the early 19th century, ultimately playing a crucial role in the state’s history.
