Take a Specialty Tour at Old Place on Fridays!

Every Friday a costumed docent will give you a tour about life in Austin's Colony. The tour focuses on the hardships of daily life in the early 1820s. A costumed interpreter explains and demonstrates important facets of textile production on the frontier - spinning, dyeing, and weaving in addition to the regular domestic activities of that era. Other areas being addressed include building construction methods and tools, the empressario system of colonization in Texas, and land grants.
