Fort Croghan Day - October 10, 2015

Revisit the beginning days of Burnet, Texas at the Fort Croghan historical grounds and museum.  From 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday, October 10, 2015, you will be able to walk through history with soldiers, Native Americans, frontier folk, and old west gunfighters.   Some of the fun will include making soap, churning butter, and blacksmithing demonstrations.  There will be some present-century entertainment, too!   Admission is FREE, but donations are accepted and appreciated.  

Fort Croghan is located on Highway 29 (703 Buchanan Drive) in Burnet.  More info is available at, at the Fort Croghan website or the Fort Croghan facebook page.  You can also call the Burnet County Heritage Society at (512) 756-8281 for details.  

If you are planning a visit for Fort Croghan Day, why not stay overnight in an old historical building in Burnet?  The Verandas Guest House is a step back in time for travellers -- one part of the house used to be a stagecoach stop!
