Pioneer Texas

  • Jesse Jones Park and Nature Center 20634 Kenswick Dr. Humble, TX 77338 (map)

Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home!  Join us at Pioneer Day at Jesse Jones Park.  Visit our tent for hands-on activities, crafts, bone identification, and a mock-excavation. Discover how Texans lived after they began to transform the frontier into farms and create homes of their own.  

At Pioneer Day, re-enactors demonstrate settler life in Stephen F. Austin’s colony during the 1820s and early 1830s. Old-fashioned crafts, music, demonstrations, and period re-enactments bring the homestead to life.  From 12-1 pm, you will have the chance to hear the Houston School of Irish Music Band.
