Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site presents Twilight Firelight
Twilight Firelight brings the old 1850s stagecoach inn to life where visitors enjoy the ambiance of the candlelit inn, period music, dancing, mule-drawn stagecoach rides and reenactors clad in period attire. Inns like Henry Fanthorp’s were places where news from far away was spread, ideas were exchanged, and communities developed.
Guests can board a stagecoach or a mule-driven wagon for rides from the Grimes County Courthouse in Anderson to Fanthorp Inn beginning at 4:30 pm with the last ride leaving Anderson at 7 pm. Rides will leave every 15 minutes. The last stagecoach and wagon rides will leave Fanthorp to return to Anderson at 8 pm. Guests are required to dress appropriately for the season as parts of the event and are held outdoors, and the wagons/stagecoaches are open air.
