Historical Things To Do Brenham Texas

“For a few precious moments…..I am back in Old Texas, under a high sky, where all things are again possible and the wind blows free.”
     – Larry L. King  

“Texas is still a last frontier. It is the part of the United States where the traditional virtues are still operating. In short, a piece of living history.”      – Author John C. B. Richmond

The 176th anniversary of the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence will be recognized during a free two-day festival  at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site. The festival will provide endless opportunities for family-oriented activities. All admission fees will be waived during the celebration weekend!

Throughout the two-day celebration, the 293-acre park along the Brazos River will be transported back to the time when Texas was a sovereign nation. Re-enactors in period clothing and members of the Texas Army, along with skilled craftsmen and talented musicians, will fill the park as Texas commemorates its inception. In addition, food vendors selling a variety of festival foods will be on site.
