History

Then known as San Felipe de Austin, the town served as the capital of Stephen F. Austin's first colony and the founding spot of the Texas Rangers. It was first governed by James (Jack) Cummins who was appointed the first Alcalde. The town was burned in 1836 to prevent the Mexican army from capturing it. The town was rebuilt a few years later, but never regained its popularity. The oldest post office in Texas is located here (77473).
