Textile Destinations – Washington, Texas

Over the weekend my husband and I took advantage of the mild winter weather to do a little sight-seeing.  We went to a nearby state park, Washington-on-the-Brazos.  Not only was the Texas Declaration of Independence signed here in 1836, but the home of Anson Jones, the last president of the Republic of Texas, is also situated here.  For these two reasons, the park is on the List of Sites Sacred to True Texans, and my husband feels obligated to check on it once in a while, to be sure he approves of the way it is run.

Independence Hall didn’t look any different than it did during our last visits in 1984 and 1987.

Independence Hall in 1984

For that matter, it didn’t look any different than it did in 1836.  That’s the whole point.
