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

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...

Due to a slight drizzle going through the city, my wife and I had the park all to ourselves. It was great visiting the well-maintained buildings and just having a big photofest without having to consider about other photographers. It would have been even better if they sold food/drinks in the "town center."

Spend an afternoon walking through this very nice little park that will give you a glimpse of early Dallas. During school year there are a lot of field trips so plan accordingly. A good glass of root beer and plenty of buildings to visit and take in. Very nice for a relaxing day in Dallas.

Visited here a long time ago with friends and wow, what a amazing place it was. Coincidentally it was a family day when we visited, which means there were people dressed in western style in all those buildings to tell you about how things were done in times gone by. Do try out the root bear the serve in salon.

As long as you can climb old fashioned steps to get in the buildings you are going to enjoy this great collection of period buildings. The sidewalks are ramped but not the buildings

very cool, one of the best attraction in dallas (not open in january) You can visit many buildings of the early 1900, and in every house there is a person which answers questions about the people who lived there and other curious facts about the house. very interesting, worth the visit and you can spend how much time you want.
