Homeschool Day

02/18/2021, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Life and chores didn’t stop when winter arrived in Texas!  Join us on February 18, 2021 from 9am to 3pm to see how the citizens of Washington on the Brazos spent their winters preparing for spring.

We are presenting our homeschool families with another day jam-packed with historical demonstrations unlike other school programming. This winter’s themed day will be “Jobs in the Republic: Work Is Never Done,” and will feature ongoing special programming throughout the day. Staff at Barrington Plantation, the Star of the Republic Museum, and Independence Hall will bring you close encounters with livestock, artifacts, and everyday life of Texans during the Republic Era.  Bring a picnic lunch or purchase from our two onsite vendors, The Grill Sergeant and Always Cravin BBQ.

Activities include:

  • Medicine of the Republic
  • Weather in the Republic Exhibit
  • Preserving Pork
  • Candle Dipping
  • Laundry
  • Tailoring
  • Simple Weaving
  • Rope Making
  • Inn Keeping
