The picturesque Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site is located on the banks of the Brazos River and includes the site where Texas declared independence from Mexico on March 2, 1836. The 293-acre park provides a beautiful setting for picnicking, walking, sightseeing and bird-watching. The Star of the Republic Museum, Independence Hall and Barrington Living History Farm offer visitors a unique insight into the lives and times of the men who fought and won Texas’ independence. The Visitor Center Complex is a great place to meet staff and receive orientation to the park and our different sites. The complex also houses interactive exhibits, park headquarters, and the Washington Emporium Gift Shop. The gift shop contains a variety of t-shirts, hats, Texas history maps and books, Texas souvenirs, and snacks.
Boxed lunches will be provided.
