Travel back in time to where a nation was born in 1836.  On the third Saturday of each month staff and volunteers dressed in period clothing bring to life the people and events of Old Washington providing a unique opportunity to discover various aspects of life surrounding the birth of the Republic of Texas.  The program features activities suited for the entire family including blacksmithing demonstration and Texian Militia display with black powder rifle demonstration at timed intervals: 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.  Try your hand at writing with a quill pen and sign a copy of the Texas Declaration of Independence.  Visit with militia soldiers traveling through town or try your hand at some early Texas games.  Step back in time and discover the spot where Texas became Texas!  (Activities will vary and some are weather dependent.) Traditional tours of Independence Hall will not be offered these days. For more information, contact Jon Failor at (936) 878-2214 ext. 224 or
