I followed Tripadvisor advice to get there, I have no idea why this sightseeing ranked out of ten, to me, it was excellent. The day arrived, it was Saturday and having heritage parade and dancing party that people dressed costume like movie workshop, I was very exciting. Apart from hotels heritage, tools, barns, classroom, ranch, bars, post office, clinic, station,... More

Pack a picnic lunch and set the GPS for 1515 South Harwood, Dallas, TX 75215. (Unless you're familiar with the territory, a GPS will help prevent missing the turns in this neighborhood just south of the central business district and Interstate 30.) What's in the park? An impressive collection of original buildings constructed in the mid to late 19th century.... More

This is a good opportunity to see the real structures of Wild-Wild West for the people who are wondering how it was. We liked a lot to see the architecture of the local buildings coming from a couple of centuries ago. Full of details, you may easily spend a half day or so if you are really into it. I... More

When looking for places to visit in Dallas we came across the Heritage Village and decided to pay a visit. We stayed locally in Dallas and walked here, it took about 20 minutes in a near enough straight line, so very easy to get to if you want to walk, drive or take a cab. On site there seemed to...

We were 2 couples looking for interesting places to visit in Dallas and we came across a review of Dallas Heritage Village. We decided to check it out right after lunch time and when we arrived at the site, there were lots of kids in field trips with schools and we thought we might have made a wrong choice, but... More

You have to walk a bit far from the modern downtown and the entrance is not so easy to see. But once you are inside it`s like having traveled with a time machine and suddenly you are in the 19th century. I strongly suggest a visit here and go inside the buildings moved from around Dallas in this area, original... More

Park your car and take a walk---a long walk around all of these historical buildings. They area is well maintained and will be a great day from all the neon lights, bars, etc. Just like it was many years ago.You are just a few blocks from downtown Dallas or the district where there are lots of restaurants and bars.

This is a glimpse of what Dallas looked like at the turn of the century, Tour the insides of the buildings to get the full benefit. You will be surprised at many of the things you will "discover" are not so new. A great place for kids!

This was such a find! It's a little out of the way but well worth the 5-10 minute drive from downtown. It has about 25 buildings from roughly 1850-1910 (houses, a bank, general store, school, saloon, etc), most of which you can walk into even if the volunteers aren't there, and all with appropriate furniture and decor so you get...
