Every Thursday in October, the staff at the Star of the Republic Museum and Barrington Farm will present Childhood in Early Texas, an interactive, hands-on program for the entire family, targeting students ages 5-12. Visitors will learn about childhood chores, clothes and schools, and then make some old-fashioned toys to take home. At Barrington Farm, they can experience life on an 1850s era farm to learn more about the crops, livestock, and daily life of early Texans. No minimum group size required. Hours: 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Cost: $8/child, $6/adult for both attractions. Reservations and payment in advance required by calling Elaine Platt, Visitor Services Coordinator, at (936) 878-2461 ext. 236 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
