Overview

Located on the grounds of Dallas's first city park, Dallas Heritage Village is the perfect place to step back in time. You can immerse yourself in the lives of Texans during the pioneer and Victorian eras. The buildings are all part of North Texas history and give you the opportunity to see and experience nineteenth century life. As you stroll through the grounds, you'll discover how crops were grown, how animals were cared for, how family life progressed, and how the sense of community developed for ordinary Texans over 100 years ago. The Village hosts multiple family events throughout the year and visitors can participate in daily activities led by History Hosts.

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.

This is a wonderful place for a family to explore the activities of the past. It just just south of the Dallas Farmer's Market. A great way to spend an afternoon with free parking. There is an admission charge.

What a wonderful way to get into the Christmas spirit! We enjoyed visiting during the special event weekend with music, holiday decorations, food, ... It was a step back into the 1800s - I definitely recommend!

There's something both enchanting and classically morbid about this village. These buildings are bones of the past - a literal cemetery that lays across from modern city lights. Each building in the village has its own purpose and own character. You can easily spend half...More

The historical society has located, transported, and restored original buildings to create a representation of small town life at the time Dallas was founded. There are several homes, a school, bank, doctor's office, general store, and farmstead. Kids have plenty of room to run around,...More

First off, I don't recommend walking from downtown even though it's close. Rent one of those bikes or take a cab/Uber/Lyft. But DO go! An assortment of homes and businesses occupy a spacious, green park-like area, and docents perform throughout the day, bringing local history...More

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