THROWBACK-Thursday: Fannin Battleground State Historic Site
With the recent news of the San Antonio Missions gaining a World Heritage Site designation, we thought it would be appropriate this week to highlight a fairly recently completed project of ours that also played an important role in Texas history - The Fannin Battleground State Historic Site. Owned and operated by The Texas Historical Commission, this memorial site is situated in the small town of Fannin, Texas and is open daily to the public at no charge. In 2011, THC commissioned us for an extensive makeover of the site that would include the restoration of the original bandstand with new museum exhibit space on the first floor, a brand new restroom facility, new entry gates and signage. The site is meant to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers of the 1836 Battle of Coleto Creek during the Texas War for Independence. On this site, Col. Fannin and his men fought for two days and ultimately surrendered and then later executed by Mexican forces.
