Christmas on the Brazos featuring Barrington’s Candlelight Christmas

“Christmas on the Brazos featuring Barrington’s Candlelight Christmas” will be held Saturday, December 12th, at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historical Site off Highway 105 between Navasota and Brenham on FM 1155
December 12, 2015 (Washington), Texas – Start the holiday season by spending the afternoon and evening at Washington on the Brazos SHS with modern and historic activities for all ages, staggered throughout the park. Independence Hall will host 19th century readings from some of our favorite Christmas literature at 1 PM, 2 PM & 3 PM. The Star of the Republic Museum will have period crafts available from 11 AM to 3 PM and will be open regular hours. Music and merriment will surround you in the Visitor Center from 2 PM to 7 PM as merchandise made by Texas artisans is featured in the Washington Emporium gift shop and local Texas fare is available for sampling and tasting. Take advantage of a self serve photo opportunity with Santa who will have miniature horses standing in as his reindeer. At 4:30 PM, activities will begin to shift from the Visitor Center to Barrington Living History Farm for the evening event, Candlelight Christmas, which will be held from 4:30 PM to 8 PM. The farm will be open from 12 PM until 3:30 PM for standard tours then will reopen at 4:30 PM for the Candlelight Christmas event with ticket sales ending at 8 PM. Space is limited so reservations are strongly recommended. Standard site admission fees apply.

The Candlelight Christmas event will feature timed vignettes or glimpses into 1850s festivities through a candlelit tour of Barrington Farm. The event will include live 19th century music and dancing, bonfires and Christmas readings, 1850s Santa Claus, musket firing, cookies and hot cider. Please allow at least one hour to complete the full experience. Groups will enter the site at timed intervals.

When you enter the Candlelight Christmas event expect your senses to be filled with the sights and sounds and maybe even the smells of yesteryear. Wood smoke swirls in the cool, dark December air. Pops and crackles of a distant fire fill the quiet night while its dancing flames cast a warm glow upon a split rail fence and the dewy grass below. As you follow a column of flickering lanterns into the Texas night a flash of light catches your eye and the dark erupts with gunfire and cheers. You have stumbled across a rowdy band of Texian revelers who welcome you into the 1850s. Walk the candlelit paths at Barrington Farm and experience a Texas Christmas in the decade before the Civil War. Learn the origins of some of our favorite holiday traditions as costumed interpreters bring to life the festivities of the season with musket-fire, music, dancing and more! Tour the historic home of the last president of the Republic, Dr. Anson Jones, as the family enjoys their Christmas gathering. Visit the farm’s quarters to hear how the enslaved at Barrington celebrated the season. Sip a hot cup of cider, cozy up to the fire and begin your holiday season with Texas State Parks!
