Our state is filled with historic buildings that reveal the struggles and hardships shared during our fight for Independence. No building contains the spirit of that call for our freedom more than Independence Hall, located at Washington on the Brazos. Next month we will pay honor and tribute to the signers of our declaration, during our own Texas Independence Day Celebration.
An inside look (stark as it may seem) of the signing place of our important declaration of independence. It is located at Washington on The Brazos. No bare building could tell the whole story, but if these walks could talk thay would be very revealing to all of us. March 2, 1836……a day that we all need to remember.
Folks are so excited about having an historic event like The Texas Independence Day Celebration of North Texas at Granbury, on March 2nd and 3rd that they are racing to get here. Join the excitement and be a part of living history yourself. If you fail to attend you will be missin’ out.
Granbury’s own Ridge Roberts at the age of 9 will be the featured fiddle player at this year’s Texas Independence Day Celebration. Ridge picked up the fiddle a short two years ago, and immediately knew that he was destined to learn how to play the instrument. He has since learned by memory over forty songs, and the vast number of those songs are about TEXAS. You will want to hear this young Texans as he “powders up his bow” on March 2nd and 3rd in Granbury.
TEXAS Independence Day plans include G.I.S.D. projects that involve teaching our kids about the importance of this great event in our states history. Richlon Merrill is in charge of that area and he would welcome your input, or assistance in working on the most important aspect of this coming years’ event. It’s all about TEXAS!
