Pioneer Farms [TX]

Pioneer Farms is a living history farm museum, located on the site of an 1844 homestead, in what is now Austin, Texas. The site includes several 19th-century structures furnished in the style of different time periods—between 1860 and 1899.

The museum offers living history demonstrations, period rooms, historic skill classes, exhibits, and Scout programs. The website offers a trivia quiz, a scavenger hunt for use on site, a blank family tree, and paper dolls.
