Lloyd Mays Art Exhibit at Brenham Bus Depot

Lloyd Mays was born February 22, 1956 in Brenham, Texas. Born the last of fourteen children, he found out early on that his verbal expressions were either overshadowed or ignored by his parents and siblings. Upon receiving a paint-by-numbers kit for his sixth birthday, Lloyd say that painting eliminated the need to compete for his family’s attention. Everyone was now surrounding him to see what he had made. Today his paintings and poetry can be seen and read in Brenham as well as abroad. Most of his paintings are drawn from memories of his childhood and from area he was raised. The Bus Depot is open to the public Saturday from 10-4, but by appointment Wednesday – Friday.

Harvest and Crush Grapes at Windy Winery

Due to the COVID 19 going on we will not be able to stomp grapes like in the past years, but we came up with this fun way of learning about how we actually process our grapes to make wine.
Come out to the winery & enjoy creating happy memories with your family, friends, or co-workers. Start in the vineyard, pick grapes, pour some grapes in an old time destem-crusher which crushes the grapes. Then we will put the juice in a jar for you to take home to make juice or jelly. Enjoy a cool glass of sangria (under 21 yrs. old sips on a cool Grape Slushy) and listen to music which makes all the stress in your life fade away.

Hot Nights, Cool Tunes in Downtown Brenham

Fulling Fodder Demonstration at Barrington Plantation

Dr. Jones penned in his journal on July 13, 1854 – “Commenced taking corn blade fodder.” Although very few ears of corn were used to feed livestock, the dried leaves of the corn plants made excellent hay (fodder) that could be fed out to them as needed to supplement foraging. Come pull and make “hands” (bunches) of fodder from our corn crop!
