Texian Days at George Ranch

One beautiful October day, we stepped back in Time to the Texian Days at George Ranch. The ranch’s biggest event of the year, Texian Days portrays the life and times of Texians of the Republic of Texas from 1836-1846. Anglo settlers who supported the Texas Revolution are Texians.

Texian Days brings the Ranch to life with homestead tours, battle reenactments and Civil War campgrounds, cattle herding, blacksmithing, and hands-on activities.

Food trucks and handmade crafts abound. Guests will enjoy Bar-b-que, an array of sweet treats, including root beer floats, fresh mango sno cones, and goat milk popsicles (replete with a goat-milking demonstration) and more.

George Ranch houses 4 homesteads, the 1830s Jones Stock Farm, the 1860s Ryon Prairie Home, and the 1890s Davis Victorian Complex,  and the George Cattle Complex.  Saturdays, visitors enjoy an era-themed 6-course dinner at the 1830s Jones Stock Farm cooked on an ornate cast-iron oven.

J.R. Thomas, the Site Lead for 1830s Jones Stock Farm, said Texian Days is put on by 12 paid staff and numerous volunteers, who generously give of their time and expertise and come from far and wide for this annual event.
