Really nice staff. Went on a very quiet day, so no activities but the self-guided tour. Brought back a lot of childhood memories, seeing the simpleness and familiarity of the homes and their furnishings, but very creative and efficient designs. The only disappointment was not...More

This collection of relocated Texas frontier buildings includes one room log cabins, a church, schoolhouse and even several homes of the more elite of the time. There are many artifacts and implements as well as a display of indoor items in the visitors center. It's...More

We went on a day that the lady said it was a little different than usual because of the 4th of July weekend. I'm really not sure what the difference would have been on a normal day. They did have people selling food and people...More

We went for the Christmas lights. They set them up so you can drive your car through. They ask for donations at the end. Well worth it.

As a history teacher I found this incredibly enlightening. There was a variety of buildings built as early as 1840. One-room cabins, large homes, a school house, church, and more gave a real taste of early Grayson County.
