1 True Texas Women on Thu Feb 24, 2011 3:00 pm

"True Texas Women"
March 26th & 27th
10am until 4:30pm
Barrington Living History Farm

Though separated by time from the pioneer women who settled this vast land known as Texas, we are still connected to them through the emotions and experiences that all women share. On March 26th and 27th, from 10:00 am until 4:30 pm, the staff of Barrington Living History Farm will present True Texas Women which will share the stories of the lives of these strong, determined women who often endured difficult and extreme hardships as they helped tame the Texas frontier.

As we celebrate Women’s History Month and Texas History Month, spend the day at the Farm and hear the sagas of the women’s lives using authentic letters and diary entries and spoken by costumed interpreters. Throughout the day, try your hand at spinning, quilting, tatting, making a sampler, crafting items to display in your home. Create your own hairwork jewelry which allowed pioneer women to make and wear a memento of someone they loved. Visit the kitchen for a peek at what tasty 19th century foods are cooking on the open hearth. Learn about the important aspects of pioneer women’s lives including cosmetics, 19th century fashions, childbirth, herbal remedies, and mourning the loss of a loved one.

Barrington Farm is located at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site in Washington, Texas, off SH 105 between Brenham and Navasota, on FM 1155. Admission is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students. Children six and under are free. Discount tickets are available to tour Independence Hall and the Star of the Republic Museum. For additional details, call (936) 878-2214, ext. 246.
