Saturday, April 28, 2018, 8 AM - Noon: Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site

We will meet in the parking lot at 8AM. The park is located about 75 miles northwest of Houston and will take a little over one hour to reach on Saturday morning. The are entry fees for the museum, farm and Independence Hall. The fee is $9 for all venues per person. We can decide which venues we want to visit after we arrive and bird some of the park property.

The picturesque Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site is located on the Brazos River. The expansive park grounds along the Brazos River provide a beautiful setting for picnicking, sightseeing and bird-watching. The Star of the Republic Museum, Independence Hall and Barrington Living History Farm, offer the visitor a unique insight into the lives and times of the men who fought and won Texas' independence from Mexico.

Barrington Living History Farm was the home of Anson Jones, last president of the Republic of Texas. Handcrafted reproduction log buildings and cropland demonstrate the working of a Brazos Valley farm, circa 1850. Interpreters in period costume work the farm as it was done long ago.

Saturday, May 26, 2018: Galveston Hotspots  8AM - Noon

We will meet our local guide at Moody Gardens at 8AM. Our guide will determine our destinations closer to the date. More information will be coming.
