Lots of different areas, lots of structures - but you can see that maintenance/upkeep/restoration is needed. Good if you don't mind being self-directed. If you bring a stroller, make sure it's the offroad/large wheel variety. There were three people on the grounds to explain their areas, and while they were informative that left a lot of areas uncovered. More informative... More

I live 15 minutes from here and never knew it existed. If you are driving into Austin from the north it's before you hit town. This should be higher up on Trip advisor because it's something both kids and parents will enjoy. Admission is $8 for adults and $6 for kids and totally worth it. You can get a free... More

Great volunteers and very interesting sites. We weren't expecting much but genuinely had a great time! Getting to "walk into" history was a different experience than the norm. Puts the everyday lives of the pioneers in a new perspective and makes them come alive.

Hidden in what is now largely a suburban section of Austin, is this learning center and active farm. There are quite a lot of interesting things to see and do here. First, there are the farm houses from different periods of American history. Second, the walk between sites is relaxing with the woods and waterways. Third, there are a variety... More

You should always check out the events going on at Pioneer farm. Themed history settings. Saw Charles Dickens Christmas one year... you really felt you were back there.

This was my first time to visit Pioneer Farms after living in Austin all these years. The play was put on by volunteers. They did a great job. The play was 1 1/2 hours long and with a full moon - it was a great time for everyone of all ages to attend. I also enjoyed going through the general... More

Great park if you are interested in how Americans lived in the 1800's. You start at the General Store in the village called Sprinkle Corner. Next door to the store is a building housing a collection of buggies and wagons. The building to the right of the walk in entrance houses another display. Most of the buildings are open during...

This is a lovely part of the past that is being preserved in Austin. There are several homes and other buildings placed on a large parcel of land that cannot every be built on due to its historic nature. Bring a picnic, visit the blacksmith and wander in the woods. It's a great place to bring children.

We took our 6 year old grandsons for the haunted house. There are 4 or5 haunted buildings to go through. Was so much fun and exciting. They are very daring and though we jumped out of our skins and screamed a lot they loved it! If you go wear walking shoes and carry water their is a haunted trail you... More
