- There is something about small, famous museums that draw people from afar, and this is one of the state's gems. Maybe it is because it was the dwelling place of Jane Long, "The Mother of Texas," or maybe because of the historical ranch activity. Whatever the attraction, visitors are able to follow much of Fort Bend county's history from the start of the Austin Colony in the early 1800s to the sugar cane pioneers. On the grounds you will be able to view the 1840s Long-Smith home as well as the 1883 Victorian residence of Texas Congressman John Moore.
