Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site - Texas Parks & Wildlife [Official]

Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site Near the spot where Texas declared independence from Mexico, and back when getting places was bumpier and sleeping was lumpier, a stagecoach stop on an old Spanish road evolved into a popular place for weary travelers to rest. Today it is known as Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site. Open for public tours on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Reservations are required for group tours and school events. Contact the park for more details.
