Candlelight Christmas at Barrington Farm

December 7 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm CST

$5 – $25

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. Shop for unique Texas gifts in the Park Gift Shop, sip a hot cup of cider, cozy up to the fire and begin your Holiday season with Texas State Parks! Contact Barb King at 936-878-2214, x246.
