Make history this month at Texas State Parks. From rock art sites to historic structures, missions, military frontier forts or pioneer farms, history is better outside!

Tour the Mission Espiritu Santo at Goliad. Connect with the West Texas ranching heritage of Big Bend Ranch. Meet the “father of Texas” at Stephen F. Austin State Park. Or travel even further back in time to the Native American pictograph sites of Hueco Tanks.

Learn what it means to be a Texan at San Jacinto Battleground and Monument, Fanthorp Inn, Washington-on-the-Brazos or Fort Richardson. Make living history a reality with a family visit to Sauer-Beckmann at LBJ or Penn Farm at Cedar Hill.

Many state parks offer guided events or hikes to historical attractions. October is also Texas Archaeology Month, so be sure to explore the many events going on to celebrate. Click here to find a list of featured historical events and locations.

Need more inspiration? Read the Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine article (or watch this featured video) about the rock art at Hueco Tanks State Park and Historic Site.
