Not much there, but it's a neat area worth exploring. Cool vibe with lots of restaurants and shops if that's your thing.

Wonderful historic vernacular buildings brought from all corners of Texas. I visited too late in the day to see all of the structures but those I did make it into were interesting. Very pleasant area to walk around. Will return to explore more fully.

This place was great to see a small collection of buildings from Dallas’ history! Was nice to combine it with the history of other places. Can be done quickly, so makes a nice short stop!

They have some volunteers to give you an informative tour of some of the buildings. The Blacksmith, the Farmstead, and school were nice because they have people dressed up in that era.
