170th Anniversary, April 8, 2011, 4:30-7PM

Celebrate the 170th year of the oldest home in Austin, with birthday cake, punch, & a “Glorious Opportunity” to help the French Legation. The Museum is launching the Glorious Opportunity Preservation Campaign with a celebration of the historic home. Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell will symbolically mark the transition from planning to preservation with a ribbon cutting ceremony! Birthday guests will learn how to become a Mover and a Shaker in the preservation of Austin history and will be treated to a special look at the French Legation through time, as well as a brief architectural tour of the home. Free to the public, we welcome all those who value the museum’s mission: to promote understanding and appreciation of Texas history and culture through preservation of the legacy, structure, and collections of the French Legation of the Republic of Texas.
