This past Saturday (July 18, 2015) we saw two plays: Pericles and 12th Night. We loved both performances, and particularly loved the enthusiasm of the performers. The performers are students at the University of Texas, and this is an academic course during the summer where students study an dperform Shakespeare's plays. The director, Professor James Lochlin, has great credentials: MA... More

Call the Winedale Historical Center to book a visit with a docent to get tons of interesting information. Our tour guide, Barbara, did an outstanding job. Even if I only remember a portion of the information she doled out, it was a great learning experience. We toured both the Lewis home and the McGregor homes and the barn. The homes... More

I want to go see it again. They put a lot of work into it and the shop is cute with many good items. Learn a bit of Texas History by walking around the grounds and reading the information.

Used to attend "Eeyore's birthday party here back in the late70's. The girls still remember it! Round Top is a cool little town. Also, they have live Shakespeare there, too. Would love to go back :)

I attended the German-Texan Society Conference here. It is a nice, country setting not far out of Round Top, TX. We were able to run out to see the Nassau Plantation easily and it is close to Frelsburg, TX and other historical areas. Peter Pieper and his son, my ancestor Anton Pieper had much history nearby.

I watched a performance by University of Texas students of "Comedy of Errors" by William Shakespeare at the barn in Winedale. Lucille Ball must have stolen most of her comedy routines from Shakespeare.The plays and the venue are worth a little exploration to find "Winedale. Tickets at $10 for non students and can be purchased at http://www.utexas.edu/cola/progs/winedale/Performances-And-Tickets/The-Plays.php. The Texas drawl... More

They open the historical buildings to visitors and docents dressed in period clothing tell the stories of the area which was donated by Miss Ima Hogg, daughter of the... More
