Spend a Saturday at Log Cabin Village, where Fort Worth pioneer history comes alive. The Village is a living history museum that preserves and interprets Texan pioneer-era buildings and artifacts. It’s a popular destination for many local school field trips. It’s also a great place to visit if you’re touring Dallas Fort Worth real estate and hoping to discover more about local history.
The forested village is comprised of six homes and cabins, a school, smokehouse, gristmill, blacksmith and an herb garden. Foster Cabin is a grand two-story log cabin home formerly run as a plantation. Parker Cabin was the home of Texas military and political hero Isaac Parker, whom Parker County is named for. The working Blacksmith Shop is where you’ll find blacksmiths creating goods you can pick up from the village General Store to decorate your Dallas Fort Worth real estate.
Log Cabin Village is nestled between suburban Dallas Fort Worth real estate and the Fort Worth Zoo at 2100 Log Cabin Village Lane in Fort Worth. The outdoor museum is closed Mondays but open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on the weekends from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free for children ages 3 and under, $4.50 for children and seniors, $5 for adults and $4 per person for groups of 10 or more.
