[Gallery Presentation] Frontier Texas Survival

January 25, 2020 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

The Texas frontier in the 1800s was no place for the uninformed and unprepared. Adapting to this hostile environment meant using ingenuity, an understanding of the environment, and having the tools to overcome the challenges. Historian and raconteur Dennis Jones will take you back to that time with a display of black powder weapons and an assortment of common items that every self-respecting frontiersman had in his kit.  Learn how simple natural materials were incorporated into an everyday life with few luxuries beyond a good hunting rifle.
