The FRENCH LEGATION MUSEUM is a non-profit historic house museum. The structure was built to serve as the diplomatic outpost for King Louis Philippe of France to the Republic of Texas in 1841. The Legation originally sat on 22 acres of land, from today’s E. 7th Street to E. 11th Street, bordered by East Avenue (IH-35) and San Marcos Street.
