Old Stone Fort Topic of February TAGHS Meeting

February 20, 2019 - When George Washington became the first President of the United States in 1789 the Old Stone Fort was already standing in Nacogdoches. Though the original building was demolished in 1902, a replica was erected on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University in 1936 as a museum.

Carolyn Spears, Curator of the Old Stone Fort Museum, will speak to the Timpson Area Genealogical and Heritage Society on the history of the Old Stone Fort and its museum at the monthly meeting of TAGHS on Wednesday, February 20 at 2PM in the Meeting Room of the Timpson Public Library, located on the corner of Austin and Bremond Streets in Timpson. The public is invited.
