Join us on May 4th, 2013 for the Living History event . Historians bring the Fort to life. 1850 s military and civilian life is re-enacted. Artillery drills, Cavalry drills, sutlers, hay rides to see the buffalo, black powder shoot, spinners, buffalo hunters, Native American displays, and so much more!
Friday is school day and anywhere from 1,200 to 1,500 students attend each year! Saturday is open to the general public!
Fort Chadbourne Hay Rides
During Fort Chadbourne Days there is always a hay ride to visit the animals. The Fort Chadbourne buffalo herd usually increases in size each May with the addition of new babies. The babies are born orange in color and slowly change to the recognizable shade of brown we envision when we think of buffalo. Duke and Daisy, two Texas Longhorns recently joined the Fort Chadbourne family. Blackjack, the donkey is also a permanent resident.
Come join us for a fun and educational day in Texas History! Admission is free, but donations are always welcome.
