The Stone Fort Museum

Upcoming Exhibits and Holiday Hours

Stone House Exhibit Stone Fort Museum will close Monday, Dec. 18, 2017, through Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018, for university holidays and exhibit installations. Exhibitions for 2018 will include Y’Barbo’s Stone House and the Stone Fort Museum featuring artifacts John Durst and his family used while living in the stone house from 1829 to 1834. An exhibit on ‘everyday carry’ will examine the objects of past and present that people deem important enough to carry in their pockets, purses and packs at all times.

The campus of Stephen F. Austin State University is home to a fort, and not just any fort. A fort that was a trading post, private home, church, jail, and saloon - but never a fort. A fort that was built three times, and a fort that was torn down by men to be re-erected by women. Read more about the history of the Stone Fort.
