Nineteenth century writer Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) referred to his ride on a Concord Stagecoach across the mid west as being gentle as a baby carriage gently swaying back and forth. Arriving on time was the goal of all early mail coaches and as the mail carriers combined mail delivery with public transportation the challenge soon became that of moving mail and people aboard a large, heavy stagecoach in a timely manner. Poets, cowboys and musicians entertain as visitors tour the Inn and learn about travel and communications at one of Texas most authentically restored stagecoach inns. Stepping onto the Fanthorp front porch is a passage into yesteryear as guides take visitors back to Texas in the 1850’s. It’s a unique event the whole family will remember and enjoy.
