Sugar Land Town Square

The Stephen F. Austin Monument at Sugar Land Town Square depicts Austin emerging from the Brazos River on horseback. His horse rearing, Austin struggles to lead a packhorse stumbling in the river’s current, represented by the surrounding fountain waters. A portrayal of the struggles of settlement and colonization, Sugar Land’s monument pays homage to Austin, whose original Texas colony encompassed what is today Fort Bend County.
