We stopped by the Starr home and enjoyed the tour by a knowledgeable guide. The story of the family was explained clearly.

There isn't a... More

It's not a park! I don't understand why they call it that. It's an antique house filled with antique items that you can walk through for a lesson in history, and one families story. It's a nice time, but the name is quite misleading.

I first read about the B&B located at the Starr Mansion in my Texas State Parks book. It sounded intriguing and a little out of the ordinary, so I figured why not. I really didn't have high expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed one weekend in Feb '02 (one of those freakishly warm weekends in Texas). Guests stay... More
