Heritage Farmstead [TX]

The Heritage Farmstead preserves a representative example of Blackland Prairie farm culture and history from about 1890 to 1920 on its four-acre farmstead site. The centerpiece 1891 Farrell-Wilson house represents the daily life of a prosperous farm family on the North Texas Blackland Prairie.

The farmstead offers exhibits; guided tours by costumed docents, which may be adapted for school groups; living history demonstrations; and recreational and educational events.
