Richard Fadal with TexasScapes has donated new cedar posts to replace old ones and all we need now is FRIENDS to help take down the old and put up the new.

Send me your name, address, email and phone number so I can contact you with the date and time to "RAISE THE ARBOR and information about other fun events at the Homestead .
Not shown here, but the Bee Barn, which houses artifacts found onsite before the Homestead was restored, also has deteriorating boards. A new board will be installed before the Girl Scout tour on Sunday, October 6th. Old stuff teaches many lessons.
NEIGHBORHOOD FRONTIER NIGHT - and HOMESTEAD OPEN HOUSE
Wednesday, October 23rd 6:30 -8:30 PM
THE TEXAS GENERAL LAND OFFICE presents Buck Cole with answers about what was here before Wells Branch with unique maps as prizes. The Homestead will host an OPEN HOUSE beforehand at 6:30 PM for a walk-thru. If you want to help greet people at the OPEN HOUSE and own a period costume to wear, please contact me, Virginia Almon at 512-993-7559. Also, if you have any original documents or pictures of the Homestead restoration or about the beginnings of Wells Branch, consider bringing them too. I hope to compile and scan them and return them to you as soon as possible.
