Produced by the Fort Bend Broadcasting Company, this 1960s film documents sites around Fort Bend County, including the county courthouse, cemetery, and Dyer Moore Ranch. There are brief shots of plaques commemorating important figures of the Old 300, the name used for the original 300 families that received land grants in Stephen F. Austin’s first colony.
