About Heritage Farmstead Museum:
The mission of the Heritage Farmstead Museum "is to collect, preserve and interpret late 19th and early 20th century Blackland Prairie history while making excellent use of the authentically restored Farrell-Wilson Farmstead, a designated historic site."
The museum captures turn-of-the-century farming on the Blackland Prairies of North Texas on its four-acre complex that includes row crops, gardens, a windmill, and an 1891 Victorian farmhouse with 12 original outbuildings.
The farmhouse has 12 rooms, and the restoration of the farmhouse and outbuildings was a $1 million project. All that money pays off with a great historical museum that allows visitors to step back in time to a different place and era in North Texas history.
The grounds of the Heritage Farmstead Museum are open yearround, Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 1-3:30 p.m. For access to the buildings, visitors must take a self-guided tour or a guided tour.
Self-guided tours are available November through August, Monday-Wednesday only, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Guided tours are available yearround, departing at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and 1 p.m. and 2:45 p.m. on weekends. Admission fees are charged depending on the type of access or tour.
A museum store on the grounds offers reproductions and handmade items, plus books and gifts.
