Jared Groce's Plantation on the Brazos River.
Bernardo House at the Groce Plantation with the Twin Sisters.
Foundation at the Jared Groce Plantation.
The Plantation is expansive. Groce is the richest of the 300 settling families and can feed an army out of his barns, storehouses and herds. He has a blacksmith with an extensive shop on the grounds. There is even a store of lead pipe to melt down for bullets. Houston and some officers begin to feed, equip and train the men. Many are sick and they get food, rest and care. They start work on getting 700 men out of the weather.
