One Book, One City Event Deal Me In: A Night at the Stone Fort Saloon


(Nacogdoches, TX) – The Nacogdoches Public Library and the Stone Fort Museum invite all ages to a one-of-a-kind event on Saturday, October 7th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Stone Fort Museum will open for this limited time as the Stone Fort Saloon with card games, barroom food, music and prizes.
Everyone starts their evening with a pocket full of Republic of Texas replica bills. Win or lose at the card tables, or mosey on over to the bar for some sausage and root beer. Trade your earnings in for prizes like a Stone Fort bar towel or shot glass. Leave your six-shooter at home because we’ll have a shooting gallery with rubber band pistols. You might win a set of marbles only to lose them. If you really want to keep your stash of cash, play Go Fish at the kid’s table, but mind your manners!
“Deal Me In: Night at the Stone Fort Saloon” is part of the Nacogdoches Public Library One Book: One City project featuring Charles Portis’ 1968 novel, True Grit. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the museum at (936) 468-2408 or email or the library at (936)559-2970 or email at
