Washington-on-the-Brazos

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.

This is a place that every Texan should visit. When the weather is permitting, take a walk around the grounds, take pictures, and visit the museum.

I so, so enjoyed my visit to BeeGoods Mercantile. Check out the schedule online before you go, as there are times when you can ask a "Bee Expert" any questions you have and other times when an expert beekeeper will take you on a FREE hive tour. But, even if you miss the expert and the tour, there are three beautiful observation hives you can check out inside the gift shop which were fascinating. I can't believe the expert and hive tour are free, or at least they were when I visited, but I made up for that in the gift shop. It is super cute and full of unique honey-based products, honeys to sample, and bee goods (the candy is to die for). On my trip, I only intended to ask the "Bee Expert" some questions, but I ended up taking the tour as well. Both events were so fun, mostly due to the expert and tour guide, an elderly beekeeper named Roosevelt. He has this infectious smile and wonderful disposition, but don't let that fool you. He understands bees better than most anyone, having worked them for almost 50 years! I learned so much, and just wanted to think of more questions to ask him so I could hear his down-home answers. At one point, another couple on the tour asked what a bee was doing on the screen at the observation deck and he answered, laughing, "That bee is making boo-boo." It was just so funny and fun (yes, the bee was doing her business). Then he told how after a cold snap, when it's warm again for the first time, all the bees will fly out of the hive and do their business, seeing as they've been in the hive holding it for days on end. It was just a totally fun, educational, and friendly place to visit, and I left with a stack of great gifts for the "hard to buy for" types!

Star of the Republic Museum

Reviewed By capitollover - Austin, Texas

If you know nothing about Texas pioneer history in 1836, you will learn all you need to know at this one museum. If you have visited several Teas history museums, there is still more to learn. I have visited about 12 different pioneer museums in Texas, and I still learned about 6 new facts on my visit here.

There is an informative 20 minute film that I recommend. The theater is a nice respite from walking around the grounds, too.

They boast over 10,000 sq. ft. of museum space with many artifacts, and they are not wrong. The displays are well laid out, and have good signage.

I would allow at least an hour to see everything, and 1 1/2 hours if you also see the film. I recommend you see the film first as an overview.

They have 2 levels, but the upper floor is accessible by elevator if you need it. You may also go out on the deck of the upper level to view the surrounding countryside.

Enjoy!

The Western Club Bar and Grill

Reviewed By RickK - Fulshear, Texas

A really friendly neighborhood style bar that also has great food. Beer is cold, good liquor selection and the food is very very good. I am staying in Navasota during the week only so cannot say about the weekend entertainment but I hear they have karaoke and also so pretty good bands play here also. If you want a really good meal, a cold beer, and see some friendly folks...give The Western Club a shot.

This is fun spot to find s wife array of antiques--vintage curios and furniture, artwork, movie posters, albums...and the unique antique radio repair and sale shop. The Fifties/Sixties space-age designs are "out of this
world!" The Blues Museum gives one insight into what
a blues history Navasota has. A selection of guitars are for sale. The main street has a number of other interesting shops.

Barrington Living History Farm

Reviewed By capitollover - Austin, Texas

We visited on the 3rd Saturday of the month, so we were able to attend a cooking demonstration and fire making demonstration. Cool! The docents were dressed in period costumes, which was nice to see.

There are a number of artifacts, home furnishings, farm implements, and about a half dozen longhorns.

The path to the buildings is dirt and gravel, so it worked great for motorized (scooter) wheelchairs, but the people pushing regular wheelchairs seemed to have a difficult time up the slight hill. Just an observation, not 1st hand experience.

I recommend comfortable walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen, and mosquito repellent.

There is a fee for admission, but if you have a Texas Parks and Wildlife yearly pass, it is free.

I would allow about an hour here if you come at a time the docents are doing presentations.

Was able to catch NTA's latest production, Steel Magnolias, and was very impressed with the acting, the set design and direction by Earlene Rainey! From what I hear, ALL shows were a sell-out. As a member and regular patron, I would recommend any upcoming show.
