There is a Civil War reenactment every year. We went to the reenactment. there were vendors, and educational activities. They had one person that had Lamas and let us feel the wool she was spinning. It was very soft and beautiful

The plantation house is beautiful and the tours are full of history. Love the reenactment every year as well as the sutlers and vendors. This is a must see for anyone who enjoys history.

A civil war reenactment was on our list of things to do. The Plantation is 3 1/2 hours away and seemed like the best opportunity. We loved Tora Tora Tora and had hopes this might equal all effort of those people. It's like comparing oranges to tomatoes. The Civil War Reenactment at Liendo Plantation was well worth our time.

Excellent day trip from our Houston area home. The plantation entrance is somewhat tricky to locate but well worth the effort. Make sure you go on the first Sat. of the month as that's the only time it's open for public tours. Amazing piece of pure Texas history! Also, interior photography is not allowed; this is a private home.

I heard about this plantation while touring the Elizabeth Ney Museum in Austin and always wanted to see it. The tours are only offered once a month so you need to plan carefully but it so worth it. The house has so much history. Although the famed sculptor Ney lived in this house, I soon realized it contained much more... More

Such an amazing place to go. As soon as you get to the plantation you will feel like you've traveled back in time. Gorgeous mansion with views all around of the beautiful country-side. They put together a very fun and memorable Civil War Re-enactment that is a must see in November. It is worth exiting HWY 290 to spend some... More

What a surprise to find such a beautiful plantation home so close to Houston! Our tour guide was wonderful, and presented interesting facts about the home as well as the life style back in the 1800's. Would highly recommend stopping by and visiting. Plus the Braham cattle are huge! Several of them let us walk right up to the fence... More

A lot has been written about Liendo; the destination. For me; pardon the moss on this one, getting there is half the fun. If you want an enjoyable country ride to a great destination I would suggest that leaving Austin you take TX 71 East and TX 159 to Hempstead. This route winds through the rolling Texas countryside past ranches... More

"Built in 1853 Liendo was one of Texas' earliest cotton plantations, Liendo was the social center of Texas receiving and lavishly entertaining early Texas dignitaries. A typical Southern plantation, Liendo was self-sufficient, and was entirely built by skilled slave laborers including brick and stone masons, carpenters, and smiths" At the end of November each year Liendo is the site of...
