Out of the Past

Journey Back in Time 2

These photos are taken in Barrington Farm, a living museum farm in Washington On The Brazos State Park near Houston, TX.

The farm represents the mid-1800s farm founded by Dr. Anson Jones, the last President of the Republic of Texas. The residents are costumed interpreters who live their lives as in the 1800. They raise cotton, corn, cattle and hogs using period techniques. The recreated outbuildings include two slave cabins, a kitchen building, a smokehouse, a cotton house and a barn. The farmstead opened in 2000, and is operated by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

An interesting place to visit if you were ever in the area.

  1. OMG, why do we lose what is simple and warm, why do we trade it ? How can we think that fake beauty is better at conveying love than rugged, raw beauty? These pics are a gift. We search for a far away happening of happiness when we should recognize the content of contentment...
