Lipantitlán State Historic Site is a 5-acre (2.0 ha) park located at FM 624 and 70 just east of Orange Grove in far northwestern Nueces County in the U.S. state of Texas. Fort Lipantitlán, meaning "Lipan land" was named for the Lipan Apaches who once inhabited the area. The 1835 Battle of Lipantitlán between Mexican and Texian forces was fought here.[1]
