In 1836, while the Alamo was under siege, 59 delegates met here at the Brazos State Historical Park to declare independence from Mexico. Located 70 miles northwest of Houston, this 293-acre state park appeals to history buffs and nature lovers alike. You can tour Independence Hall, study the Republic of Texas' unique history at the Star of the Republic Museum, or experience life on a 19th century plantation at Barrington Living History Farm. Facilities include a playground and 26 picnic sites in a pecan grove near the river. This place is daily open to the public at 8am.
