On Time and Cradled Like a Baby11am-3pm
Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site, 579 S. Main St., Anderson
Arriving on time was the goal of all early mail coaches and, as the mail carriers combined mail delivery with public transportation, the challenge soon became that of moving mail and people aboard a large, heavy stagecoach in a timely manner. Mark Twain referred to his ride on a Concord Stagecoach across the Midwest as being gentle as a baby carriage gently swaying back and forth. Come out to Fanthorp Inn to enjoy presentations at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm as poets, cowboys, and musicians entertain visitors while they tour the Inn and learn about travel and communications at one of Texas’ most authentically restored stagecoach inns. Stepping onto the Fanthorp front porch is a passage into yesteryear as guides take visitors back to Texas in the 1850s. It’s a unique event the whole family will remember and enjoy! Suggested donations are $4 for adults, $2 for children.
