This Texas Historical Commission property was a place where Civil War veterans met for reunions from 1889-1946. Today, it remains a gathering place for living-history events and family reunions, and offers a place to picnic, fish and canoe. Other historic features include the 1893 dance pavilion, a Civil War-era "Old Val Verde" cannon and structures from the "Roaring '20s" and Mexia oil boom.
Open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily.
