Larry Golden and Linda Gorski will talk about the artifacts recovered from the mudflats of Buffalo Bayou near the long forgotten 19th century Townsite of San Jacinto by the Golden family of Pasadena in the 1960s. The Townsite of San Jacinto adjoined the San Jacinto Battlefield and was also a gathering place for Texians fleeing during the Runaway Scrape. These artifacts give us a unique glimpse of life in Texas before, during and after the Texas Revolution. They are currently being researched and cataloged by the Houston Archeological Society and are also prompting new archeological investigations in the area. Many of the artifacts will be on display in The Heritage Society Tea Room before and after the presentation.
