Living History Weekend, Building the Town of Washington: A Trades Program

Oct 21 2023 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site

On October 21st and 22nd from 10am-4pm both days, come see the skills and trades used in constructing the town of Washington. You will see surveyors, blacksmithing, brick making, log and frame construction demos, and carpentry. “Buy” a town lot at a recreation of a Washington Town Company auction, and then find where the actual lot was on the park grounds! There will be plenty of activities for kids of all ages, like "building" a cabin, and a passport like booklet for navigating your way through "establishing a residence in Washington."
