Children of all ages flocked to George Ranch Historical Park this week for spring break to get a taste of what life was like yesteryear.
Activities included planting the spring garden with Henry Jones at the 1830s Stock Farm, enjoying tours of the historic houses, catching the blacksmith in action at his shop and seeing cowboy demonstrations throughout the day.
“Spring break is a great time to visit the park,” said Director of Programs Susan Vanderford.
“The local wildlife is out in full force with the warming of the weather and it’s so nice to be outside enjoying the almost 200 years of Texas history right around you.
“There’s something special about eating a picnic lunch underneath the same oak trees that Henry and Nancy Jones sat under with their family in 1824.”
