The Bastrop Homecoming and Rodeo originated in in 1947 as a way of welcoming back 90,000 soldiers who had been based at Camp Swift during WWII. Today we welcome locals and visitors alike to this unique, hometown event where you'll find live music, a rodeo, various tournaments, dances, class reunions, and a Grand Parade. This four night celebration is full of "feel good vibes" and memories for the making.

Bastrop Museum & Visitor Center

Details
Located at 904 Main Street and established in 1952, the Museum has works diligently to collect and preserve materials and documents relating to the history of Bastrop and Bastrop County. Our archives, collections and exhibits attract historians, genealogists, writers, families and students. Artifacts span more than 200 years from when Native Americans foraged widely through the area to the latter part of the 20th Century. Documents vary from the 1834 Ayuntamiento of Mina (Bastrop County), to letters written in 1967 by local residents who successfully prevented the removal of the remains of Governor Joseph Sayers from Fairview Cemetery in Bastrop to the Texas State Cemetery in Austin. www.bastropcountyhistoricalsociety.com
