Villa de Austin Fire Recovery Campaign

On Friday, April 9th, 2021, the newly constructed "courthouse" building, part of the Villa de Austin exhibit at the San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site, was destroyed in a fire. The Texas Historical Commission and the Friends of the THC are committed to rebuilding this integral part of the Villa de Austin exhibit over the next few months.  Many of you have reached out to us offering your support in this effort.  Please join us in rebuilding this exhibit by making a contribution to the Villa de Austin Fire Recovery Campaign. 100% of your contributions will support the rebuilding and refurnishing of the courthouse building.
