Historic re-enactors visit the Back 40 at the Institute of Texan Cultures

The Institute of Texan Cultures will welcome a team of costumed re-enactors to the Back 40 outdoor learning area. As a conclusion to the annual Texas Trails & Tales program, these experts will portray Buffalo Soldiers, pioneer families, merchants and other denizens of 1880-1890 Texas.
These first-person interpreters will offer a true-to-life look at the Texas frontier, including daily chores, attending school, surveying land and working in a frontier military regiment.
The Back 40 is the outdoor learning area t the Institute of Texan Cultures. The recreation Texas Frontier setting features five period buildings: a log house, a barn, a one-room school house, a fort and an adobe house. Stocked with the accoutrements of the era, a day on the Back 40 offers visitors a valuable insight to the daily life and challenges faced by early Texans.
