Presented by Texana Living History Association and the A.W. Perry Homestead Museum, Texas History Alive! is an opportunity for learning about Texas history in a fun environment with lots of hands-on experiences. You will see an 1870s chuck wagon where you will be able to visit with Smokey (the cook) or the fur-trapper with his pelts. Step into a pioneer-style tent where costumed volunteers will be demonstrating life skills such as spinning and weaving. You may help with chores such as the laundry, butter churning and corn griding, or play with the pioneer toys. There will be presentations by historical figures like Sam Houston, Molly Goodnight, DeLiens Rose or Susanna Dickenson. Docents will be available for tours of the farmhouse. Designed for Scouts, but open to the public; all ages are invited. Volunteer opportunities are available.

Participation in the make-and-take crafts requires pre-registration. This a come-and-go event; however, not all activities will be available all day. You will need the full time, noon to 5 pm, to participate in all of the activities. Fee is $10 per child, accompanying adults are free. Those who register by February 28 will receive an event patch.
