"This is a rare opportunity to educate children and all visitors about the history and significance of this historic site. History comes alive and becomes three dimensional. Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site is a tremendous resource for this unique period in Texas history!" - Deanna Alfred, Ed.D.

Independence Hall

Revered as the one of Texas’ most significant historic places, it was here in 1836 that representatives of the Texas settlements met to make a formal declaration of independence from Mexico. A replica of Independence Hall marks the place where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed and the government of the Republic of Texas was created. Walk in the footsteps of Davy Crockett as you continue past Independence Hall and make your way down historic Ferry Street. At the end of your walk, enjoy the beautiful view of the Brazos and Navasota Rivers at our scenic overlook.

Tours of Independence Hall are offered daily and provide a great opportunity to discover the unique history of Texas. Check at the Visitor Center for times and required tickets.
