Step back in time and come visit and tour the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm, at the LBJ Ranch. Period-dressed costumed park interpreters will take you back in time to the traditions of a 1915 German farm family and will show how the necessary, low profile chores needed to be done in order to survive in the Texas Hill Country prior to electricity and running water. Visitors will discover how common things used today were vital in life of yester years. All park visitors should stop first at the State Park Visitor Center to obtain a free park permit, map and visitor event information before they travel back in time at the living history farm.
10 am to 3 pm. Free, but donations are welcome. Call 830-644-2252 for details.
