October 16, 2011 Archeology Day

French Legation Museum’s Archeology Day 2011
A part of the Texas Historical Commission’s celebration of Texas Archeology Month

Join us at the French Legation Museum as we celebrate archeology! On Sunday, October 16, gates will open at 1:00pm for this day of free fun and learning activities. Guests will enjoy free tours of the French Legation Museum, the oldest wood-frame structure in Austin and a Texas State Archeological Landmark. Hands-on activities include children's mock dig, meet & greet with THC Archeological Stewards, fun info and coloring sheets, and displays of archeological findings from the historic site.

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.
