The pecan is one of the most iconic symbols of Texas and is deeply tied to our history and culture. Did you know that we nearly lost the pecan, or that there are multiple varieties in existence? Here at Washington, we have a unique, old pecan tree that has witnessed much of our state’s history. Come on out and hear its story and learn more about the state tree.
