Anniversary celebration set at Washington on Brazos

All Texans (and those who got here as soon as they could) are invited to a Texas-sized 181st anniversary celebration on the very spot “Where Texas Became Texas” - Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site. It was March 2, 1836 when 59 delegates bravely met at Washington, Texas to make a formal declaration of independence from Mexico. From 1836 until 1846, the Republic of Texas proudly existed as a separate nation.

“Texas Independence Day Celebration” is an annual twoday celebration from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday, March 4 and Sunday, March 5, 2017 on the expansive 293-acre park grounds and its three incredible attractions. Those are: Independence Hall - a replica of the site where representatives wrote the Texas Declaration of Independence; Star of the Republic Museum which houses collections and programs honoring history of early Texans and administered by Blinn College; and Barrington Living History Farm, a place where interpreters dress, work and farm just as the original residents of this homestead.
