Monument Hill and Kreische Brewery State Historic Sites

The monument is dedicated to the 1842 Dawson and Mier Expeditions, known for the "black bean death lottery." Mexican President Santa Anna decreed that captives draw from a pot that contained 159 white beans and 17 black beans, and those who drew black beans were executed. The 48-foot stone, bronze and polychrome monument is a tomb for the Republic of Texas patriots. The site hosts a Texas Heroes Day event on the Saturday closest to Sept. 18.
