Barrington Plantation State Historic Site

Travel back in time to 1850 and explore the original home of Dr. Anson Jones, the last President of the Republic of Texas. The Jones family lived at the farm for over a decade, building a successful cotton farm with enslaved labor after Texas joined the union. At this living history farm, visitors can participate in daily activities alongside costumed interpreters who explain the lifestyles and technologies of Texans 150 years ago and perform some of the same tasks on the farm as its original residents. The farm also includes replica quarters where visitors can learn more about the personal lives of enslaved people in Texas.
