This clip, originally aired as part of the January 13, 1958, episode of "Texas in Review," features an historical overview of the town of San Felipe and a tour of the house. The restored log cabin, an example of a typical colonial homestead, contains bricks from the original structure and houses a number of period artifacts.
"Texas in Review" was a television series sponsored by the Humble Oil & Refining Company. Originally produced in a news-like format by Fort Worth's Channel 5, the series was later given to the Jamieson Film Company, who developed its newsreel and TV-magazine style. For five years, Jamieson produced the program in its entirety (writing, filming, editing), until recession-induced budget cuts caused Humble Oil to cancel it in 1958. While on air in Dallas, it enjoyed the prime time spot between the popular "Burns & Allen" and "I Love Lucy."
