Event Description:
Begin the holiday season by spending special time at Washington on the Brazos. Activities commence in the early afternoon and extend into the evening, bringing an 1850s Christmas alive for all.  The highlight of the celebration is Candlelight Christmas, from 5:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. at Barrington Living History Farm. Walk the candlelit paths at Barrington Farm and experience a Texas Christmas in the decade before the Civil War.  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!  Tour the historic home of the last President of the Republic, Dr. Anson Jones, as the family enjoys their Christmas gathering.  Visit the farm’s quarters to hear how the enslaved at Barrington celebrated the season.  Sip a hot cup of cider, cozy up to the fire and begin your Holiday season with Texas State Parks! Tickets can be purchased $10 for adults and $5 for students at the Visitor’s Center with the last ticket being sold at 8pm. Attendees will be directed to park in front of the Visitor’s Center and a wagon will take you down to Barrington Farm. Contact Barb King at 936-878-2214 x246.
