Ron Rogers, a Surfside Beach general contractor, dedicated his Independence Day holiday to begin the Fort Velasco barracks renovations in Surfside Beach, the Cradle of Texas independence. With temperatures in the mid-nineties Ron and his family began clearing the overgrowth around the building.

The next phase will include the leveling of the building, so that we may convert it into the welcoming center for the soon-to-be-constructed fort.

During the work, the Rogers found a “Freedom Palm” and relocated it to the perimeter of the village sign identifying the location of the fort’s reconstruction.IMG_1253 IMG_1251 IMG_1249 IMG_1258 IMG_1257 IMG_1254 IMG_1256 IMG_1266 IMG_1264 IMG_1263
