When arriving out on the frontier, early settlers did not always have access to necessary building materials and had to improvise. Without bricks and mortar, sometimes without wood, the people of early Texas constructed shelters and homes out of the materials at hand. Join us on December 15 as we look at the good and the bad of early frontier construction.

Presentation times are 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and the program 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 Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site, 12300 Park Rd. 12, Washington, TX 77880. Accessible for the mobility impaired. Program subject to cancellation.
