Mathis, TX 78368
Located on five acres east of Orange Grove in Nueces County, this site was named after the Lipan Apaches that camped in the vicinity. In 1831, a picket fort was constructed by Mexican forces in anticipation of Anglo immigration. In 1835, the small guard force that held the fort surrendered it to the Texan forces without a shot being fired.
