Adventure Into Texas History This Spring!
with the Texas Historical Foundation
Experience the Texas legacy-- and learn from the experts!
Now, lovers of Texas history don't have
to be content with just reading about it. For
the first time, this spring, members of the
Texas Historical Foundation will have the
chance to live Texas history - to visit the
places where peoples of long ago lived and
played. Learn from archaeologists, historians,
and other experts as you visit historic
sites, dine in restored buildings, and observe
the largest (in terms of known participants)
on-going archaeological research
project in the country. The THF series of
four spring tours will present rare opportu
nities that individuals travelling alone
would never have the chance to experience.
The first tour, March 5-9, will give participants
a chance to learn about the architecture
of the Rio Camino Real and the
Hispanic ranching heritage. The tour will
be lead by Dr. Mario Sanchez, a preservation
architect with the Texas Historical
Commission, who has received several
grants to inventory and document historic
sites between Laredo and Brownsville. The
results of Sanchez's research will be used to
develop heritage tourism routes in Texas.
From April 8-12, the adventure will be
in the Texas Hill Country as participants
visit and learn about the historic missions
and forts in that part of Texas, including
Fort Sam Houston, Fort Martin Scott, Fort
McKavett, San Saba Presidio, and the San
Antonio missions. This tour will offer a
good perspective on the early European/
Indian contact years as well as an overview
of the pre-history in the Hill Country.
