Join us for Dickens on the Brazos, a joint Christmas program for Fanthorp Inn and Washington-on-the-Brazos! The holiday fun continues at Independence Hall where interpreters from Fanthorp Inn will set up a Christmas Post Office. Families can come and write letters to family, loved ones, or even Santa. We’ll teach you how to write, fold, and seal letters just like they did when Henry Fanthorp was the postmaster at the Fanthorp Inn.  Contact Chandler Wahrmund (chandler.wahrmund@thc.texas.gov) for more information. At the Tavern at Washington-on-the-Brazos, interpreters will be putting on Smoking Bishops and Charles Dickens: A Christmas Tavern Program! Ring in the holidays at the Birthplace of Texas! Join us by the fire in Lott’s Tavern as we celebrate the Christmas Season with readings from Charles Dickens and the making of historic seasonal food and drink recipes. You will leave feeling the Christmas spirit of the mid-19th century! Contact Adam Arnold (adam.arnold@thc.texas.gov) for more information.
