dc.description.abstract This thesis examines the remains of Peach Point Plantation main house in Jones Creek, Brazoria County, Texas to interpret the Austin, Bryan, and Perry families through their remaining material culture. The Austins, Bryans, and Perrys comprised a unique family with a keen interest in the progress of mankind. Their sacrifices and loyalty deserve extra attention and can be seen in their material culture. The work to date on Peach Point has been useful in documenting the facts, but bringing its material culture to light will help this period be understood. The fact that this house is not available to the public and is not in good shape brought about the idea of recording the house and its history before it is gone, this being the next best thing to being able to visit it. en_US
