“This week marks the arrival at the Bullock State History Museum of rare artifacts for the upcoming exhibition, La Belle: The Ship That Changed History, and the movement of two key ship timbers into place in preparation for this highly anticipated exhibition,” informs the museum.

It’s a great opportunity for me to share the link towards my recent French Morning story on that French ship that motivated the Spanish to be more present in today’s Texas and ultimately gave birth to the Tejanos.

I will post more content soon. In the meantime, I invite you to check out my French places in Austin page before I update it with the evolution of the La Belle display at the museum!
