Joseph Rice Cabin

May 13, 2016  |  Outdoors  |  Comments Off on Joseph Rice Cabin

Originally owned in 1809 by Joseph Rice, he was a trader on the route to San Antonio. 9 kids expanded the cabin until 1919 when it became a farm shed.. It was restored in 1936, and donated to the state in 1973 as a historical site… pretty sweet..

Mission Tejas

Located in East Texas this old Spanish mission was created in 1690 to help convert the indians.. lets just say that did not really work out and it was only occupied for 3 years.. it does still stand today however!
