Harris County Precinct 4’s Heritage Festival Showcases Unique History of Tomball

Join Harris County Precinct 4 for a celebration of Tomball’s unique history during the Spring Creek Park Heritage Festival on Saturday, Feb. 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Spring Creek Park in Tomball.

Wander the park grounds as storytellers and historical reenactors bring history to life. View a Civil War reenactment, participate in historical activities, and learn about the diverse cultures of Tomball. Featured activities include cultural demonstrations and self-guided tours of an African-American cemetery.

“Precinct 4’s Heritage Festival highlights some of Tomball’s earliest residents, from indigenous tribes to the first Texas settlers,” said Commissioner R. Jack Cagle. “By taking a look at the past, we can continue to learn, grow, and make progress.”

One of Harris County’s most historic parks, Spring Creek Park encompasses a former Confederate powder mill, African-American cemetery, and Native American campground. So far, researchers have found artifacts and structures from early Tomball settlers and indigenous tribes dating back 2,000 years. Visitors can read about these different cultures on historical markers throughout the park.

Spring Creek Park is a Harris County Precinct 4 Parks facility at 15012 Brown Road, Tomball, Texas, 77375. For more information, visit www.hcp4.net/parks/springcreek/.
