Music Makes a Celebration

02/28/2015, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Discover the music that inspired celebration and recreation in 19th century Texas with the program “Music Makes a Celebration,” presented by Homestead Strings at Fanthorp Inn. As one of early Texas’ most occupied stagecoach inns, Fanthorp often found itself as the focal point for parties, celebrations and great balls which brought delight to significant holidays such as New Years, Christmas and Texas Independence Day.  Relive the joy that weary travelers and local citizens experienced as the Inn provided the largest accommodations in the area to host celebrations, parties and the occasional escape from the rugged Texas frontier. Presentations will be ongoing throughout the day and will last approximately 35-40 minutes. This program is open to all ages, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
