The area grew during the Civil War era, and annual soldier reunions were held 1890-1933. The old reunion ground is now the site of the annual Freestone County Fair and Rodeo in June. The county courthouse is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark built in Classical Revival style. A Civil War cannon stands on the lawn at U.S. 84 at Keechi Street in memory of local soldiers. Other events include Show of Wheels in September, Christmas on the Square in December and Market Days on the last weekend of each month (except Dec. and Jan.) Peach orchards produce fruit May through July. Look for stands along the roadways.
