Discover the music that inspired celebration and recreation in 19th century Texas at Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site with our fourth Saturday program - Music Makes a Celebration presented by “Roseville Fair Old Time String Band.”

As one of early Texas’ most occupied Stagecoach Inns, Fanthorp often found itself as the focal point for parties, celebrations, and great balls which brought delight to significant dates such as New Year's, Christmas and Texas Independence Day. Visit Fanthorp Inn on these special Saturdays from February through October to experience the life and music of Texans and travelers. Tap on the tambourine or take your turn on the dance floor as you are led through the musical steps with our pleasant dance instructor-caller. Discover stories told by costumed guides, describing the workings of an inn and its very successful Innkeeper. 

Fanthorp Inn is located at the end of Main Street in Anderson, Texas and is administered by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. This a unique event the whole family will enjoy and remember.
