White Gold : Cotton in Texas

September 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Selling cotton picked by those enslaved was the main source of Barrington’s income – a cash crop. This special program gives visitors the hands-on opportunity to work alongside historic interpreters picking and weighing cotton from the fields, seeing how close or how far the harvested amount comes to the average daily standard—100 lbs.! Learn how Texas cotton was transformed into English cloth. Contact us at BarringtonPlantation@thc.texas.gov or 936-878-2214 x248 for more information.
