Focus Weekend- Ploughing the Weeds
Dr. Jones noted in his journal on May 14, 1850 that those enslaved – “Finished ploughing and hoeing corn first time.” The crops are short and the weeds are tall, it’s time to cultivate! Come help us clear between the rows of our field crops using our single ox and shovel plow! Contact Ben Baumgartner at ben.baumgartner@thc.texas.gov or 936-878-2214 x248 for more information.
