Heritage Village hosted its annual Texas Independence Day celebration, “A Toast to Texas,” last Wednesday, which commemorated the time and date in 1836 when a group of delegates gathered at Washington-on-the-Brazos to sign a Declaration of Independence from Mexico, which set forth the creation of the Republic of Texas. The event has been celebrated at Heritage Village each March 2 with a toast of locally sourced spring water. County Judge Jacques Blanchette was on hand to speak and give the toast, and the children from St. Paul’s Episcopal School sang songs about Texas.
