One of those places I've always wanted to go, but never made time for. Glad we did today. It reminded me of my grandparents farm that I had such good memories of as a child. I enjoyed walking the house, barn, chicken coop and out buildings and sharing the memories with my children. It's a working farm, so there are... More

Our kids loved this living history museum. Lots of cool farm animals that you could get close to. There was also a small garden. The "farmers" were cooking and answered lots of people's questions about life as it used to be. They were making cheese. They discussed how the hog would be preserved. Our children left with a true appreciation... More

As part of the State Park this was a great living museum. Period dressed "farmers" on hand living as they did before modern amenities. Several areas, black smith, stable, root cellar and more. Livestock on hand, too. It was such a nice day too.

This was a wonderful place. Would have been better if the farmers and not been sick so they could answer our questions. But enjoyed the place tremendously.

Learn something new each time we visit, got a lesson in cheese-making today. We always drop by the living history farm and our kids love to stop too.

This farm offers a unique way of traveling back in time! You actually witness first hand how life existed on a farm! The volunteers are well informed, dressed to the period of that time, and enthusiastic about their way of life! You can see how butter, curds and way and cottage cheese are made from the jersey cow who lives... More

Very conveniently location next to the LBJ park. The farm has various animals and farming items of the pre-electricity era. The staff was very helpful describing how life was on the pre-electricity farm and in explaining how various hand tools are operated.

I really enjoy visiting living history museums. They are always very informative and lots of fun, especially for families. This one does not disappoint. It is small but has a lot to see. This is a well maintained original homestead. The people who work there are very pleasant and gladly answer any of your questions. It's fun to learn about... More

I went here with two young kids and they both really enjoyed it. It is very well preserved and authentic, and the volunteers answered all of my son's many questions.

This historic site has much to offer; hiking trails, peaceful scenery, authentic decor from the 1800's, freindly and informative rangers. Found it by accident while driving to Fredericksburg. You'll be glad you did.
