Discover the music that inspired celebration and recreation in 19th century Texas at Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site, with the program Music Makes a Celebration presented by Star of Texas Dulcimers.

As one of  early Texas’ most occupied stagecoach inns, Fanthorp was often the focal point for parties, celebrations and great balls. These brought delight to significant dates such as New Year's, Christmas and Texas Independence Day. Relive the joy weary travelers and local citizens experienced as the Inn provided the largest room and accommodations in the area for hosting celebrations, parties and the occasional escape from the rugged Texas frontier.

Presentation will be ongoing throughout the day and will last approximately 35 to 40 minutes. 

This program is open to all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult. Dress appropriately for the season as the presentation takes place in a period setting. Held at Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site, 579 Main Street, Anderson, TX 77830. Program subject to cancellation.
