    The French Legation State Historic Site in Austin began in 1841 as a private home for France’s representative to the Republic of Texas, Alphonse Dubois, after the French monarch officially recognized the Republic of Texas as a sovereign nation. The historic structure, landscape, and new visitors center provide a cultural destination where people from the surrounding neighborhoods can gather. Outdoor interpretive panels explore the development of the French Legation property and the site’s role in the development of East Austin.   Self-guided tours are currently provided Tuesday through Saturday and are included in your admission fee (which is free for a limited time). Tours last about 30 minutes. Tours require an advance reservation and payment by credit card over the phone. Group size is limited to about five people. For more information, call 512-417-7686 or email us.
