category : State Historic Sites
Visiting Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site is an enjoyable experience on two levels. First, the expansive park grounds along the Brazos River provide a beautiful setting for picnicking, sightseeing and birdwatching. And secondly, the Star of the Republic Museum, Independence Hall and Barrington Living History Farm, offer the visitor a unique insight into the lives and times of the men who fought and won Texas' independence from Mexico.

The 293-acre park includes the site where Texas declared independence from Mexico on March 2, 1836. Visitors can commemorate this event in a replica of Independence Hall. A visitor center includes exhibits about the town of Washington and the convention of 1836 and offers a complete description of park activities and facilities. The park also includes Barrington Living History Farm, a working farm of the 1850's centered around the home of Anson Jones who was the last President of the Republic of Texas.
