Sealy sits on 11,635 acres purchased by in 1875 by the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe line which were part of the original 22,000 acre tract of land granted to Stephen F. Austin.  To preserve the site's important role in Texas history, a world-class $12 million museum facility was constructed in 2018 and a recreated block of the original town called "Villa de Austin" where kids can learn and play opened in 2022.  Today, the museum has opportunities to educate students and other visitors--including volunteering as docents who dress in period costume and run the printing press as well as behind-the-scenes roles.  Contact the museum about volunteer opportunities.
