Cotton Still King at Burton Cotton Gin Festival 2001


| March/April 2001


Celebrating an era when cotton was still king, the Burton Cotton Gin Festival will make history come alive again on April 20, 21, and 22, 2001, in Burton, Texas.

The Cotton Gin Festival developed from Burton's distinction of being home to the most intact historic cotton gin left from the early twentieth century.

For 13 years, volunteers working in cooperation with the Smithsonian Institution have painstakingly restored the cotton gin to working condition. Tours of the gin are a highlight of the festival.

The entire weekend is jam-packed with entertaining and educational activities. View working examples of antique engines and farm equipment from all over the nation. Craftsmen and hobbyists will present folk life demonstrations, recreating lost rural arts.



Proceeds go to the continuing restoration of the Burton Cotton Gin museum complex. For more information call 830-997-8515 or e-mail creative@ktc.com or locally 979-289-3378 or cgfestival@comwerx.net
