Generations of Texas history and commerce encapsulate Varner-Hogg Plantation State Historic Site, which tells the story of its three owners: Austin colonist Martin Varner, sugarcane mogul Columbus Patton, and Texas Gov. James S. Hogg along with the people - both free and enslaved - who worked to make it successful. This property hosted sugarcane production, rum distilling, and oil drilling as it transitioned through families.
