Austin Town has a new date and location

Post Date:02/05/2020 3:18 PM

Step back in time with the Brazoria County Historical Museum as it presents Austin Town on Saturday, February 22, 2020.  Austin Town recalls and celebrates the lives of pioneers who settled colonial Texas from 1821 to 1832. Now located at the Brazoria County Fairgrounds, Austin Town features character interpreters, craft and skill demonstrators, militia members, and much more.  Austin Town visitors will meet historical characters in Jane Long's Tavern, sample traditional food served in a Mexican jacal, and witness the work of blacksmiths shaping metal.

Austin Town is a valuable teaching resource and provides visitors with the opportunity to learn about Mexican Texas in a hands-on environment.  We can all share in our heritage by learning more about the many people who shaped Texas into what it is today. 

Tickets are $3 for Children (12 and under) and Senior Citizens (65 and over), and $5 for Adults.  The gates will open at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 22, and close at 4:00 p.m.  Austin Town is located at the Brazoria County Fairgrounds, 901 S. Downing St. in Angleton. Parking is free. For more information, please contact the Museum at 979/864-1208 or via e-mail at programs@bchm.org.  

School tours available Friday, February 21.
