Rough Road to Texas Independence Walking Tours
Join us for a free walking tour at historic Oakwood Cemetery featuring interesting stories on “residents” who helped Texas win its independence from Mexico 1835-1836 plus displays of the flags and paintings from the events that helped form the Texas Republic. Actors will portray heroes from the Texas Revolution battles, survivors of the Alamo and the Goliad Massacre, and founders of the Republic of Texas. The 45-minute tours are family-friendly and free, but donations are gladly accepted to fund preservation projects. Tours start every ~30 minutes 10am-2pm. Kids under adult supervision are welcome, but please leave your pets at home and wear closed-toed shoes.
