Refugio was established in 1795, but with rising problems and a failed mission of establishment, it wasn’t until 1828 that Refugio became a permanent settlement in Texas. Refugio played an important role in the Texas Revolution by forming together and electing Sam Houston and James Power to represent Refugio at the First Convention of Texas in order to form a new government, and at the Battle of Refugio, which took place March 12-15, 1836. The people of Refugio opened the way for the “Day of San Jacinto.”
