Texian Heritage Festival - October 19, 2013 - Montgomery, Texas

October 19, 2013
Fernland Historical Park
780 Clepper-Montgomery, Texas

Booming cannons, dramatic Texas Independence battle reenactments, a Texian Army tent encampment and Native American dancers are among the highlights planned for the Texian Heritage Festival at Fernland Historical Park in Montgomery, the third weekend in October.

From everyday Civil War era dresses of Texas women to the most elaborate of uniforms and antebellum dresses, and dozens of pioneer activities, the Festival will piece together our native history, explore the daily lives of early Texas settlers on the frontier, and capture a glimpse of the living history and culture of Texas during the 1800s.

These Pioneer-themed events will be featured from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Fernland Historical Park in Montgomery, Texas and admission is free.

Fernland Historical Park is located in the Buffalo Springs development area located at 780 Clepper across from Montgomery Elementary School. This historical park has four cabins from the 1800’s:  the Hulon House of the Civil War era; the Jardin Cabin, one of the oldest log structures in Texas; the Crane Cabin built by Confederate Civil War veteran Nickolas Crane; and the Arnold-Simonton House, home of the Fernland Historical Park Museum and one of the oldest houses in Montgomery County.
