FORT TUMBLEWEED HISTORY TOUR AND COMPANY/FAMILY REUNION PICNIC SERVICES
I'm Len Kubiak, owner and manager of
Fort Tumbleweed (the original site of Liberty
Hill-circa 1850). The site includes many museum buildings containing thousands of relics from bygone days that are used as classrooms for living history tours. Our huge live oak trees and native Texas wildflower gardens rimmed with limestone rock from a centries old stone fence are a sight to behold.
Until further notice, the day to day operations at Fort Tumbleweed are closed to the general public while we perform major renovations to many of the site buildings and wild flower gardens and bird sanctuaries.
We will, however, continue conducting guided historic tours for small to medium-size groups on a reservation basis.
Also, check our Special Events page
What's Happening at the Fort This Month for information on upcoming special events open to the public.
FAMILY REUNIONS/COMPANY PICNICS
By appointment, we reserve the entire site (including access to some unique shopping and special museum tours not generally available to the public) for large family reunions and company picnics. We can cater a bar-b-que luncheon, bring in horses for hoseback riding, and even bring in a troope of old west gun fighters for entertainment. Several volleyball courts can be set up, and horse shoes and washer throwing facilities are available.
Joe Johns and his Western Swing Band
Our guests enjoy the abundant shade trees that cover the property and the opportunity to walk about the primitive site and reflect back on life in earlier, less complicated times.
PRIVATE HISTORICAL TOURS
We also provide historical tours of the site for small to medium groups at a cost of $10.00 per person. These historic tours typically take 1-1/2 hours and focus on Texas history using the museum resources of the site. The tour includes the "gateway to the 1800's", a dirt floor, primitive 1840's log barn containing thousands of relics from bygone days.
We can also extend the tour to include the downtown Liberty Hill area with it's array of historic 1870's and 1880's historic sites.
We adapt each tour for the interests and abilities of the visitors and wind up each tour in the air-conditioned spaces of the Stage Coach Museum Store, built in 1849.
Cold refreshments are included in the price of admission.
