Texas Independence Day Celebration

Feb 25 and 26


Candlelight Christmas

12/09/2022 - 12/10/2022, 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Silent Night and gunshots, festive music and solemn moments—an 1850s Texan Christmas experience! Discover the origins of some of our favorite Holiday traditions as costumed interpreters bring to life the festivities of the season with musket-fire, music, dancing and more! Step into the historic home of the last President of the Republic, Dr. Anson Jones, as the family enjoys their Christmas gathering. Visit the plantation’s quarter to hear how the enslaved at Barrington experienced the season. Sip a hot cup of cider, cozy up to the fire, and begin your holiday season with Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site!
