The Farmstead is a collection of buildings that have been brought to the main home to preserve them for others to see. They have demonstrations of Blacksmithing and leatherworking, and organic gardening. Worth the visit, if you would like to see an original Plano home, and other items. Many BSA Eagle projects are used to support the Museum with donated... More

If you want to see what life used to be like come visit this quaint farm in the middle of Plano. There is a fabulous main house with original furniture and tools and a barn with animals and a real garden. It really is stepping back to a simpler time and there are volunteers that will explain the history and... More

For a family in general, Heritage Farmstead is a good outing. The farm, in the middle of Plano, gives tours of the orignial home, which is restored to its glory days, will interest the adults. The kids will enjoy the grounds and numerous outbuidlings. On weekends, they might see blacksmiths or play a game. And of course there are farm... More

I have heard so much about this place over the years and finally decided to visit on a quiet Wednesday afternoon with my son. We both really enjoyed this outing. We participated in the afternoon tour (lasted about two hours) and I’m so glad that we did. Our tour guide was wonderful and took us through the historic home and... More

A lovely house from the time period surrounded by a farmstead. Kids can feed the chickens, "milk" a cow, sit in an old time schoolhouse, and basically get a feel of what life was like back when.

I went based on the reviews and i just didn't see the big deal. I guess you can't argue for the admission price but there was not a lot to the place. Good points are that it was clean.

Visit a living working farm museum. See what it's like to raise vegetables in your garden and prepare them for the table. Everyone had a chore to do on the working farm located in the heart of Plano.

The Heritage Farmstead Museum is a great place to see how it was done back in the day! My son likes seeing the farm animals and digging in the dirt. We took my mom who is 80 and she reminisced about her days growing up on a farm. The folks who work and volunteer there are very knowledgeable and friendly.... More

My son and I visited the museum today and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The tour we took only cost $5 per person and started out with a brief(15 min.) video perspective. Then we toured the main homestead which was beautifully decorated with period pieces. The docent was very informative and readily answered any and all questions asked. After... More

We used to take our kids here a couple of times a year. My daughter had a birthday party here in 3rd grade and it was wonderful! The girls dressed up like pioneer girls and we had a party coordinator that "taught" them a lesson in the school house. They also played party games out on the lawn that were... More
