History, Mission & Vision


In 1988, the Trustees of the George Foundation resolved to open a living history site to preserve the original homestead and to share the four generational legacy of the Jones, Ryon, Davis and George Families. The Fort Bend County Museum Association Board of Trustees voted to accept their landmark offer to create, manage, and present the educational and interpretive programs for the enjoyment of the public. This enduring partnership has resulted in a nationally prominent historical site visited by thousands and recognized worldwide for showcasing the heritage of Texas. We are a living history partnership of the Fort Bend County Museum Association and The George Foundation.
