Stagecoach Days

06/11/2017, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Location: Fanthorp Inn

Fanthorp Inn will host Stagecoach Days allowing visitors to experience what it was like to travel cross country via stagecoach and learn about the Inn’s history and connection with early stage lines. A suggested donation of $4 ($10 with coach ride) for adults and $2 ($5 with coach ride) for children to tour the Inn and ride the coach helps support the site. Coach rides last approximately 15 minutes and Inn tours for 30-45 minutes. This event is open to all ages; children must be accompanied by an adult.  For more information, contact Jon Failor at (936) 878-2214 ext. 224 or jon.failor@tpwd.texas.gov.

Special Focus on June 11: Children’s Toys – Join us at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. for “Children’s Toys.” A day children can learn new games from the old days. There will be several stations with fun and engaging activities for kids including period games, toys and interactive historical demonstrations. In the days before cell phones, TVs and computer games early Texas children found delight in activities such as Button Whizzers, Corn Shuck Dolls and Hoop Races. Come join the fun and take home a 19th century toy you made yourself.
