Have you ever wondered about the old fort the Texians fought to capture in the fall of 1835 and continued to hold into the spring of 1836?
Join us as we explore The Walls of Ft. Defiance through historical interpretation and hands on activities. Visit with living historians dressed and equipped as Texians manning the walls of the old Spanish fortress renamed by Fannin and his command in early 1836. Walk the same ground as Fannin, Bowie and countless other Texians. Learn more about the defenses thrown up by soldiers in anticipation of a possible siege and battle. Discover local legends attached to the work done to the fort and how they have lasted into modern times!
Dress for the weather as this event takes place out of doors. Admission is $5 for adults, $4.50 for seniors, $2 for children 6-11, under 6 are free.
