County celebrating legacy of General Edward Burleson


Features Editor

San Marcos homeowners and businesses are flying their Texas flags today to honor General Edward Burleson and the pivotal role he played in the Texian Victory in 1836.

General Burleson is the father of Major Edward Burleson whose historic home is located on Lime Kiln Road.

One local history buff said General Burleson has not received as much fanfare or recognition as other storied Texas heroes yet he is equally deserving for his legacy and progressive thinking.

Sometime in 1930 on a proud street in San Marcos, a new house was going up among the several stately 19th and 20th century homes. 

At first neighbors were thrilled. New construction was a good sign among occasional economic concerns being voiced. But then, as work continued, there were disquieting rumors.
