March 18: Today in Texas History! #txhx

It was on this day in 1836 that the new government of Texas began a three-day stay at Jared E. Groce’s plantation home in what is now Grimes County.

Groce’s house was used as the capital of the Republic of Texas until March 21, 1836. 

“Texas is still a last frontier. It is the part of the United States where the traditional virtues are still operating. In short, a piece of living history.” ~  Author John C. B. Richmond
