TEXAS TRAILS & TALES

Annual summer program opens Back 40 period buildings for a look at the Texas frontier

 
WHAT:
For six weeks every summer, junior docents at the Institute of Texan Cultures play the roles of pioneers, ranch hands and trail bosses for Texas Trails & Tales.
 
Held at the Back 40 outdoor learning area, the summer program opens five period buildings for hands-on learning experiences: a one-room school house, log cabin, barn, fort and adobe house.
 
The middle- and high-schoolers lead guests in activities unique to each setting. Learn how to rope cattle at the barn, read maps with Buffalo Soldiers at the fort, take a lesson in penmanship at the school house or catch up on chores at the log cabin.
