Twilight Firelight

Location: Fanthorp Inn

Twilight Firelight brings the old 1850s stagecoach inn to life where visitors enjoy the ambiance of the candlelit inn, period music, dancing, mule-drawn stagecoach rides and reenactors clad in period attire. Inns like Henry Fanthorp’s were places where news from far away was spread, ideas were exchanged, and communities developed. Guest can board a stagecoach or a mule-driven wagon for rides from the Grimes County Courthouse in Anderson, TX to Fanthorp Inn beginning at 4:30 p.m. with last ride leaving Anderson at 7 p.m.  Rides will leave every 15 minutes. The last stagecoach and wagon rides will leave Fanthorp to return to Anderson at 8 p.m.   Tickets will be available beginning at 4:30 p.m. the day of the event in the Grimes County Courthouse parking area where stagecoach and wagon rides to the Inn will begin.  Please dress appropriately for the season as parts of the event and are held outdoors, and the wagons/stagecoaches are open air.  First floor of Fanthorp Inn is handicapped accessible. A donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 is suggested for stagecoach ride.  Contact Jon Failor at 936-878-2214, ext. 224 or
