My son Hayden starts the seventh grade this year and while I know about Texas History, I'm fuzzy. I had a thought, that traveling Texas on the weekends would help things stick with him. We could walk some of those important areas and honorable mention and in the meantime check out some cool new parts of Texas that have never seen.

Let's discuss some of those places. Of course, the Alamo (San Antonio) is one of the big ones that will be highlighted.

What else can we come up with here?

Example:
Alamo - San Antonio

As the frontier was settled head out west and check out Frontier, Texas Museum in Abilene, then catch Forts Phantom, Griffin, and Chadbourne.

...do it around deer season, and we will knock out a slickhead on the Coleman Place you were supposed to call me about, too! grin

I do need to get out there. I have another family who's looking with us. So now that's six families looking for a lease.

Several places in the Panhandle to consider- Palo Duro Canyon, Adobe Walls, the Alibates flint quarry. Now that I stop and think about it, y'all might need to travel the whole summer, you might get a quarter of all the interesting, historical locations.
Palo Duro would be on my list though, the musical Texas tells the story.

Visit some of the Forts on the old frontier.
Fort Davis, Fort McKavett, The Presidio at San Saba, Fort Chadbourne, Fort Concho. Fort Phantom, Fort Griffin.

This has a map and info. https://texasfortstrail.com/map
There is not much left of most, but there was not very much at the time they were in use.

Frontier Texas has some great virtual learning inter active videos. http://www.frontiertexas.com/

And Belknap as well as Richardson. Richardson is probably one of the best preserved plus you can eat at Herd's.

Another good one, this place is special - Charles Goodnight's house (the real Woodrow F. Call) and his wife Mary Ann, who saved the bison from extinction.

Charles and Mary Ann Goodnight Ranch State Historic Site

Interesting thing, towards the end of his life, Charles Goodnight wouldn't sleep in the house, even in the winter. He slept outside on the 2nd story balcony.

Kimball Bend Park is a pretty cool spot that is not too far from you. One of the major crossings of the Chisolm Trail of the Brazos River.

http://www.texasescapes.com/TexasGhostTowns/KimballTexas/kimballtx.htm

Also just north of there, the Philip Nolan historical marker.

Another good idea is to have him pick out a few places that he is learning about at the time, and have him pick a few destinations.

X2 on all these places

The reenactment of the battle of Goliad is something to see for sure!

Nacogdoches, Oldest town in Texas. Go to the Old Stone Fort on the SFA campus.
Then take the short drive over to Alto and see the Caddo Mounds.

And stop and read some of the historical markers you pass. I forget if it was Tx Dot or the Texas Historical Commission used to have maps for day trips that would take you to a certain number of markers in a particular area. .
