We are history buffs and enjoy “living history museum” sites, especially in regions that are unfamiliar to us. Visiting from PA, this site helped us get a feel for Texas’ pioneer past. We spent a pleasant couple of hours walking the loop that connects a...More

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!

I am afraid that I do not know. However, the price of admission is rather reasonable. We enjoyed visiting this past (2017) summer.
