Did you know that the oldest operating cotton gin in the United States is located in Burton, Texas?
Every year, this historical treasure is celebrated at the Burton Cotton Gin Festival. A day filled with fun for the whole family kicks off with a parade followed by a classic car & tractor show, demonstrations, live music, shopping, family activities & contests, and all the food and refreshments you would expect from a small town of German heritage!
Experience the sights and sounds of the old cotton gin in action as festival goers witness the baling process. And don't miss out on a tour of the Texas Cotton Gin Museum, where you can learn about the foundation of the gin and the story of how it was saved from becoming the site of a convenience store.
