WHAT: Plan to be a part of the 100th monthly Partner Event of the Texas Tropical Trail Region. “Real Places Telling Real Stories”, the catch phrase adopted by the Texas Historical Commission, has become the motto of the Texas Tropical Trail Region as well. Real stories will come alive at the 18th century Spanish Mission Sin Caja in Live Oak County near Three Rivers and at Lonesome Dove Village inMcMullen County near Tilden.
At the Mission, you will “meet” J. Frank Dobie plus some of the characters from his 1930 book, “Coronado’s Children”, including the builder of the 18th century Fort/Mission Ramirez, Don Jose Antonio Ramirez.
Later in the day at Lonesome Dove Village, you’ll also “meet” some of the folks buried at Boot Hill Cemetery in Dogtown.
Both of these living history sites have been permanently recreated in the Brush Country Byway of the Texas Tropical Trail Region.
WHEN: Tuesday, January 21, 2014. Two charter buses will transport you to these living history events; also included will be refreshments and a buffet lunch. Cost per person will be only $20 for lunch and includes special commemorative keepsakes. Bus transportation is free (All attendees must ride the buses).
