Come experience the essential skills required for survival on the Texas frontier during the early 19th century at the Alamo's upcoming living history event, "Texas Trades," on Saturday, May 6th. "Texas Trades" will transport visitors back in time to witness how the early Texans used trades such as blacksmithing, weaving, and tailoring. Although these skills may seem old-fashioned today, they were once vital.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. throughout the Alamo grounds. It is free for all to attend. Visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to learn about trades prevalent in early 1800s Texas, including woodworking, textiles, blacksmithing, sewing, and weaving. The Alamo's Living History team, donning 19th-century attire and using 19th-century tools, will provide visitors with a hands-on experience of these trades.
Don't miss this exciting opportunity to learn about the skills that were crucial for early Texans' survival. Join us for "Texas Trades" at the Alamo to immerse yourself in the rich history of Texas.
