Join us as we present “Henry’s Wake,” a look at the ceremonies and rituals of death in 19th century Texas. The unfortunate death of Henry Fanthorp on October 31, 1867, who was the proprietor of one of Texas’ most successful Stagecoach Inns, reminds us of the fragile state of life in the 19th century. This famous innkeeper and his wife were but a small portion of the souls who met their demise at Fanthorp’s Stagecoach Inn.
Presentation will be ongoing throughout the day and will last approximately 35 to 40 minutes. This program is open to all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult. Dress appropriately for the season as the presentation takes place in a period setting. Held at Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site, 579 Main Street, Anderson, TX 77830. Program subject to cancellation.
