Overview
More
Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site is the lush, 293 acre park where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed in 1836, creating a new nation. Independence Hall, a re-creation of the drafty building where the 59 delegates met to hammer out the document, stands on the original cornerstones. The Star of the Republic Museum tells the story of the decade that Texas was a sovereign nation. Barrington Living History Farm includes the homestead of Texas' final president, Anson Jones, and is a working cotton farm. The vistor's center houses a unique gift shop and a Texas History timeline. Picnic areas are available along the Brazos River.

To step foot on the place that the Declaration of Independence of Texas from Mexico was written and signed was very exciting. We learned a lot and love to see places where history was made!

Every Texan should go here! Awesome piece of Texas history. Between the visitor center and the museum, very educational. Firmly believe this should be a must for high school children. We will definitely go again.
