The Past, Present, and Future of San Jacinto

The Past, Present, and Future of San Jacinto

The significance and shape of the land now known as San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site has evolved over time. Prior to the battle that ended the Texas Revolution, this place was a frontier cattle ranch; in the aftermath, it was a bloody wreck. Between 1899 and the 1930s, the state acquired parcels of land for a historical park. In this online program, experts from the San Jacinto Battleground and Museum discuss how the site has changed over the last 150 years and what developments are ahead to continue interpreting it into the future.
