Confederate Reunion Grounds State Historic Site

Museum Exhibit or ProgramOn the edge of the Navasota River, Confederate Reunion Grounds State Historic Site commemorates a place where Confederate Civil War veterans reunited from 1889 to 1946. Families camped under giant bur oaks, enjoying speeches, concerts, dances, fellowship and food, and raised funds for families of their fallen comrades. Today, it remains a gathering place for living history events and family reunions, and features an 1893 dance pavilion, Civil War-era cannon, and ruins of structures from the Roaring 20s and Mexia Oil Boom.
