The Little Corrals
— c. 1780 —Los Corralitos was a fortified home in Zapata County, Texas. Made from cut sandstone, mud mortar, mesquite and Montezuma cypress, its walls are 33 inches (one Spanish vara) thick. The single room has one door, no windows and six small gun ports for defense against enemies. Dating from around 1783, evidence suggests Los Corralitos may be the earliest rancho with standing structures in the state of Texas. This building, representing the Spanish Colonial era, is a replica. The original Los Corralitos was not moved because of early burials protected beneath its floor.
