Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site is the lush, 293 acre park where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed in 1836, creating a new nation. Independence Hall, a re-creation of the drafty building where the 59 delegates met to hammer out the document, stands on the original cornerstones. The Star of the Republic Museum tells the story of the decade that Texas was a sovereign nation. Barrington Living History Farm includes the homestead of Texas' final president, Anson Jones, and is a working cotton farm. The vistor's center houses a unique gift shop and a Texas History timeline. Picnic areas are available along the Brazos River.

There are a couple easy walking paths and a museum. The museum does a good job explaining early Texas history.

Educational and fun trip. Views of beautiful bluebonnet and Indian paintbrush in mid-March! Spring is the perfect time of year to visit here.

So much to do and learn! The wildflowers in March are amazing. We saw lots of people with their dogs enjoying the warm spring day.
