Visit Barrington Farm to learn how early Texans passed the time of day.  What games did they play and what crafts did they practice?  You will find demonstrators exhibiting such skills and opportunities to perhaps try your hand at a skill you would like to learn!  Play mid-1800’s games and just enjoy a day of leisure!
