Henry and San Felipe OR How to become a Colonial Texan

09/09/2023, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In just the short time between his arrival in Texas in 1831 and Texas Independence in 1836 Henry Fanthorp demonstrated the ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit which would mark his career. During this program we will discover his journey from bachelor corn chandler to married postmaster through the documents left behind at San Felipe.
