Overview

Located on the grounds of Dallas's first city park, Dallas Heritage Village is the perfect place to step back in time. You can immerse yourself in the lives of Texans during the pioneer and Victorian eras. The buildings are all part of North Texas history and give you the opportunity to see and experience nineteenth century life. As you stroll through the grounds, you'll discover how crops were grown, how animals were cared for, how family life progressed, and how the sense of community developed for ordinary Texans over 100 years ago. The Village hosts multiple family events throughout the year and visitors can participate in daily activities led by History Hosts.

There's something both enchanting and classically morbid about this village. These buildings are bones of the past - a literal cemetery that lays across from modern city lights. Each building in the village has its own purpose and own character. You can easily spend half...More

The historical society has located, transported, and restored original buildings to create a representation of small town life at the time Dallas was founded. There are several homes, a school, bank, doctor's office, general store, and farmstead. Kids have plenty of room to run around,...More

First off, I don't recommend walking from downtown even though it's close. Rent one of those bikes or take a cab/Uber/Lyft. But DO go! An assortment of homes and businesses occupy a spacious, green park-like area, and docents perform throughout the day, bringing local history...More

The Heritage Village is a wonderful little gem near downtown Dallas. It's a large park that houses numerous historic homes and businesses. Bring your walking shoes and stroll through history. The homes and business are spread across the park as if in a turn-of-the-century neighborhood....More

This is not universally publicised and is in a once up market but now less so neighbourhood. We walked it from down town and I could tell my wife was a smidge uncomfortable. Once there what an awesome collection of buildings moved and rebuilt here....More

This is a very interesting place to visit for history buffs and a photographer's paradise. Many old buildings have been disassembled, moved here and rebuilt. It all looks very authentic. There are even a few guides in some buildings to explain the history of each...More

After 20 years, I decided to revisit this little hidden gem tucked on the south end of Harwood and was surprised at how nice it looked and well-kept. First, be aware that Harwood runs through some run-down areas, but the village is gated and pretty...More

I am afraid that I do not know. However, the price of admission is rather reasonable. We enjoyed visiting this past (2017) summer.
