‘Austin Town’ historical event set Nov. 7

In News by Reporter NewsLeave a Comment

The Brazoria County Historical Museum will host “Austin Town,” an 1832 Texas History experience, on Nov. 7.

Visitors will witness the “town” come alive as volunteer interpreters portray the daily activities of settlers in the harsh, undeveloped land of newly settled Tejas. They also will meet historical characters in Jane Long’s Tavern, sample traditional food served in a Mexican jacale, witness the work of blacksmiths shaping metal and smell the powder as the militia drills with their cannon.

Those interested in being part of the action are invited to volunteer; serve as a costumed interpreter, demonstrate daily chores of early colonial settlers or help with behind-the-scenes preparations.

Austin Town is open to the public on Saturday, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Austin Town Park located at the intersection of State Highway 288 and Business 288, just north of Angleton at 22851 FM 521.

Admission prices are $5 for adults and $3 for children under 12 and senior citizens over 65. For more information, contact the Brazoria County Historical Museum at 979-864-1208 or www.bchm.org.
