Bring four-legged friends to Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site

Share a beautiful day at the park with your pup while social distancing. Visitors are invited to bring their dog (on a leash) to the Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site Saturday, Sept. 26. There will be educational booths, adoption information and pet products for sale as well as animal demos. Entertainment and food will be available. Water will be provided for the pets.

The site will be open at 8 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. with free activities taking place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

All vendors and demonstrations are outside and will be sufficiently separated apart as to help with social distancing. Attendees are encouraged to wear masks when social distancing cannot be achieved and inside all buildings.

The Presenting Sponsor, DogWatch Hidden Fences of Houston, provides hidden fences that create an “invisible” boundary to keep your pets safely in your yard and away from places you don’t want them, such as gardens, swimming pools and driveways. With a hidden fence, your pets can run, play and exercise so they stay happy and healthy.

This event is hosted by the Washington on the Brazos Historical Foundation and Texas Historical Commission.

Regular admission fees apply for Barrington Living History Farm and the Star of the Republic Museum. Dogs are not allowed on the farm or inside any of the buildings.

Washington on the Brazos is located on the Brazos River at the original townsite of Washington, located at 23400 Park Road 12 — approximately halfway between Brenham and Navasota, off State Hwy. 105. From Hwy. 105, follow either FM 912 or FM 1155 to Park Road 12.
